New Employee Orientation (“Welcome to the Nest”) 

The Office of Human Resources has designed a University-wide orientation for new employees. The goal of employee orientation is to support new staff members in assimilating quickly and successfully into the university by providing pertinent information, including but not limited to departmental introductions, parking, payroll and employee benefits.  It is important for all budgeted and full-time OPS employees to attend.  


Below are the Welcome to the Nest new employee orientation dates.
