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 required for all budgeted and full-time OPS employees to attend. If a part-time position is designated as a Responsible Employee or Campus Security Employee, attendance at New Employee Orientation is required.  


Note: New employee orientation will be conducted virtually via Zoom for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year.
