New employees

Welcome to our campus and our community; we hope the information in this section will help familiarize you to our extraordinary organization and all that it has to offer.  We look forward to getting to know you.


As a team leader, you have an important role to play in a new employee’s introduction to our organization. In addition to ensuring the new employee participates in and completes various policy and learning objectives, you have a responsibility to provide a series of positive onboarding experiences that welcome them to their job, to the people they work with, and to the university.
