Guidelines List | Forms | Procedures


New Employee Orientation is a half day educational program for incoming office-service, managerial-professional, and administrative staff. It provides an overview of basic campus services, the benefits package, employee health/wellness/safety and mandatory compliance policies and focuses on the history and culture of the University.

Most new employees (non-faculty, non-house officer) are automatically enrolled in New Employee Orientation when new hire information is entered into SAP. If a new employee needs to be enrolled into orientation or if changes need to be made to an employee’s orientation date, go to Workforce Admin in Management Resources. If you are unfamiliar with Workforce Admin, please contact Michelle Coe to cancel or change an orientation date.
