Getting Started at FAS

Getting Started

Welcome to the Faculty of Arts and Sciences!

You have probably already heard that the Faculty of Arts and Sciences is a great place to work. As you get more comfortable with our campus and your job, we urge you to explore the world of opportunities available to you here and learn for yourself what makes this working environment special.

Getting Started at FAS’s core goals are to provide new FAS employees insight, information, and strategic support that will assist them during the onboarding process and through their journey within FAS and Harvard overall. At the same time, new FAS employees will have a chance to ask questions and meet other new staff members.
