The records of the North Carolina State University Faculty Orientation and Hospitality Committee span from 1955 to 1992. The collection contains information pertaining to new faculty orientation at North Carolina State University (formerly North Carolina State College), including packets of information sent out to new faculty previous to orientation, evaluations of the orientaton event, intra-university correspondence regarding the orientation event, and other related documents. The faculty orientation packets contain a wide variety of information, including: information pertaining to the North Carolina State Woman's Club, the University Club (previously, the Faculty Family Recreation Center), tourist information regarding Raleigh and North Carolina, and items of faculty interest, ranging from retirement information to athletic events schedules. The records contain only one document after 1981, which is dated 1992.

The North Carolina State University Faculty Orientation and Hospitality Committee existed in or before 1955. (North Carolina State University was previously referred to as North Carolina State College.) The purpose of the Faculty Orientation and Hospitality Committee was to organize and host an annual orientation event for new faculty and to provide the new faculty and their families with information that would make their transition to the Raleigh area as welcoming as possible. New Faculty Orientation is still an event at North Carolina State University and packets are still provided to faculty prior to this event. New Faculty Orientation is currently (2012) sponsored by the Office of the Provost and administered through the North Carolina State Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning, which, apparently, handles new faculty affairs.
