Register New Employees to Attend Orientation

New employees are required to attend orientation. Sessions are offered on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month with occasional exceptions to accommodate University holidays.

To register your department's new employee for orientation, please complete the form in PioneerWeb→Employee Tab→Administrative Processes→Employment Actions→Orientation/Onboarding.

Employees who begin on a non-orientation day need to visit the Shared Services Center in Aspen Hall to submit their identifying documentation for the Form I-9 prior to beginning work.

Supervisors (or someone they designate to represent them) are encouraged to attend lunch with their new employee from 12:00 – 12:50 pm in Renaissance Room South of Mary Reed Building. Lunch is provided by HR and the time is used for supervisors to communicate departmental norms and begin to build a relationship with their new employee.

New employees will receive an email on the Friday before their orientation with details on what they should bring to the session and a parking pass.

Here is a schedule of the orientation session:

  • 8:15 am - 8:30 a.m. | Welcome & New Hire Paperwork
  • 8:30 am - 12:00 p.m. | Orientation topics
  • 12:00 pm – 12:50 p.m. | Supervisors join their new employee(s) for lunch
  • 1:00 pm - 2:15 p.m. | Benefits Orientation for Benefitted Employees Only
  • 2:15 pm - 3:00 p.m. | DU Discovery Time: Employees are encouraged to visit the Pioneer ID Card Office to obtain their ID, Parking Services to find out about parking information, or use the time to Discover DU!
