First steps for new faculty

Welcome to Johns Hopkins Carey Business School

To ensure a smooth transition into your new role, all new full-time faculty should complete steps below. Part-time faculty will be contacted by Deb Boyd, and visiting faculty will be contacted by Sally Holland with instructions for beginning the new-hire process.

Step 1: New hire form

New faculty are required to complete the New Hire Form to begin the onboarding process.

Email Human Resources if you have not yet been contacted to begin the onboarding process.

Return the completed form to Human Resources using Dropbox. Using Dropbox ensures the confidentiality and security of your personally identifiable information. The dropbox can be found at

Step 2: JHED ID and email

Once your New Hire Form has been processed, you will receive an email with your unique Johns Hopkins University ID. Please activate your JHED ID and email account as soon as possible. The JHED ID is required to access Carey Business School’s internal systems.

Set up your account and password by going to the university's MyJH webpage and selecting the "First Time User?" link.

Faculty members are required to use their Johns Hopkins email account. All official Johns Hopkins communications will be transmitted only through your Johns Hopkins email account; therefore, it is vital that you set up your email account promptly to receive all pertinent information. For information on setting up your email account and forwarding services, please visit the IT webpage.

Step 3: Visas

Contact Carey Business School Human Resources for visa assistance.

Step 4: J-Card and Building Access Card

The J-card is a picture ID card used for identification, security, and access to university buildings and services. To have your J-card preprinted, please submit a 2”x2” photo of your head and shoulders to Yearbook and passport photos work best. Please choose a plain, indoor background, and do not wear sunglasses, hats, or hairstyles that obscure your eyes.

In your email, include:

  • Your full name and birthday
  • The location where you will be teaching classes (Baltimore, Washington, D.C., etc.)

Your J-card and building access card will be distributed to you at New Faculty Orientation or your first official day at Carey Business School. If your J-card or building access card is lost, misplaced, or damaged, please email Operations at to request a replacement (a replacement fee will be assessed).

Step 5: Directory profile, business cards and name badges

Please fill out the following forms and submit to the Office of Faculty and Research ( for processing.

  • Faculty Biography Form. This will be used to create your profile in our Faculty Directory on the Carey Business School website. Please submit your completed form with a recent high-quality photograph. You may also include your CV or a link to your personal website to be posted within your profile.
  • Business Card Template. This information will be used to order your business cards, if applicable.
  • Your name badge for special events includes only your first and last names. If your name badge is lost, misplaced, or damaged, please request a replacement (a replacement fee will be assessed).

Step 6: New faculty orientation

Please attend the New Faculty Orientation, usually held in mid-August, at the Carey Business School’s Baltimore campus. The orientation program provides:

  • Introduction to the Carey Business School leadership and mission of the school.
  • Overview of resources that support teaching and research.
  • Overview of key policies and procedures of the university and Carey Business School.
  • Teaching Academy sessions for you to work directly with our Teaching & Learning@Carey team.

We require attendance by all new full-time faculty at the orientation programs. We also kindly ask that new faculty wait to visit the campus until the first day of orientation or your official start date.
