New Employee Orientation Program

Orienting and onboarding new employees to the university and to their positions during the first few months of their employment is critical to establishing successful, productive working relationships.

The New Employee Orientation program facilitated by University HR provides new employees with information to help them succeed in their roles and engage in the campus community.

All officers of administration, classified employees, and faculty are invited and encouraged to participate in the UO New Employee Orientation program within the first 90 days of employment.

The New Employee Orientation program includes the following sessions:

YOU & UO: Orientation to policies, responsibilities, and community standards
Employees learn about the mission, vision, and organization of the University of Oregon with a focus on departments, duties, and responsibilities.
