Faculty Onboarding


On behalf of Dean Jeffrey W. Hutter and our colleagues, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM). You’ve joined a vibrant and dynamic community of faculty, staff, and students. We are very proud that our School is recognized internationally as a Center for Excellence in dental education, clinical care, research, and community service.

I am pleased to serve as a resource to members of the GSDM faculty during all phases of the faculty lifecycle at Boston University in relation to general employment matters, academic credentialing, professional growth and development, and faculty services.

While assuming a new position or joining a new organization can often be daunting, we hope to demystify the onboarding and overall employment process. I hope you will find this section of introductory information useful as you transition to employment at Boston University or continue your professional growth as a current member of the faculty.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you may have.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.


Richard D. Rabbett

Associate Director for Faculty Services & Operations
