Resources for Faculty
Welcome to Vassar College. This information is here to help acquaint you with the college, its offices, and staff. Detailed information that pertains to your work at Vassar appears in the Faculty Handbook and the Vassar College Governance (PDFs).
When you arrive at Vassar, please contact Ms. Melissa Naitza, Director of Academic Administration in the Dean of the Faculty Office:
Main Building, North 102
Each new faculty member must complete an “Employment Eligibility Form” [Form I-9] and present the required supporting documents prior to commencing employment.
- Permitted documents for Form I-9 (via uscis.gov)
The I9 form must be completed before the college can issue a paycheck.
Vassar ID Card
Next, obtain your Vassar College ID Card (known as the VCard) from the Help Desk in the Computing and Information Services (CIS) building. Your VCard will serve as a Library card and provide access to many college buildings. You may also deposit funds (VCash) to your card so that you can use it as a debit card in the multiple campus dining facilities, merchants off campus and to charge purchases of personal items from the Vassar College Store.
After you have your Vassar ID card the Help Desk will set up your email address. For more information call (845) 437-7224. The Help Desk is available for campus computing information and troubleshooting.

To register your vehicle and obtain a parking permit, please fill out the employee vehicle registration form with Buildings and Grounds. The form is available online, see Vehicle Registration Form. Return the completed form to Anna R. Jamel, Buildings & Grounds Department, Box 704
