Getting Started

UNC embraces every faculty member as a part of the UNC community and welcomes contributions from all our college professionals who wish to contribute to our model of teacher/scholar. Gaining a comfort level with the university and with your employment process is a powerful and important part of your introduction to UNC.

Your UNC Bear Number

Your Bear Number is a permanent, unique number that identifies you as a member of the University community. It is used to identify you in the University computer systems. Your Bear Number never changes and is never reused. The nine-digit number will be assigned to you when you are admitted as a student or become an employee of the University of Northern Colorado. Please see the administration assistant(s) in your hiring department for information about acquiring your Bear Number.
