Orientation and Onboarding

All Staff and Administrators

Full-day orientations are offered on the first work day of every month. Employees hired in the middle of the month must attend a half-day session to ensure they receive relevant training and access to college systems. This applies to full and part-time employees. The part-time employee schedule is modified, however, so they attend only for information relevant to part-time status.

All New employees regardless of start date

College Knowledge

Whether you are a new or long-term employee, keeping up with changes and new faces can be a challenge. To help employees connect to and learn about different college services, resources and initiatives, the Human Resources Department is offering the College Knowledge Series.

College Knowledge sessions will highlight a different college division every month and will be an opportunity for anyone, but particularly new-to-the-college employees, to come and listen, learn, ask questions and talk about how we can collaboratively support that division’s work to ensure student success. Each college division will host a session twice a year. Each offering will be provide updates on organizational changes and new initiatives. Register for College Knowledge here.
