HR-108 Orientation


All new regular Administrative, Service & Support employees are to attend a formal orientation session as soon as possible after beginning their employment with the University.


Orientation sessions provide necessary information concerning the history, facilities and major policies of the University, staff responsibilities, faculty and staff benefits and educational opportunities. To facilitate attendance, formal orientation sessions will be scheduled at frequent intervals. Orientation session schedules are generally posted on University bulletin boards or may be obtained from Human Resource Services. Department supervisory personnel are responsible for providing each new staff member with the necessary on-the-job orientation. An Orientation Checklist or other appropriate material should be used as a guide for departmental orientation. Copies of such materials are available from Human Resource Services.

Employee Benefits

New employees should contact Faculty and Staff Benefits for enrollment information prior to commencing employment. New employees are not automatically covered for staff benefits the first day of employment. Coverage begins when the benefits forms are received and stamped by Faculty and Staff Benefits.
