Onboarding & New Hire Orientation
New Hire Orientation
Register for New Hire Orientation
Hiring managers are encouraged to register their new employees for orientation as soon as the hiring process is completed. We also highly encourage aligning new hire dates with their orientation dates to ensure they receive timely information about required training, resources, and employee benefits. Employees are now able to register as well as hiring managers.
To register for an upcoming session, log into MyDU, click on "Administrative Resources and Processes" under Employee Tools, scroll down to "New Employee Orientation and Onboarding", then click on the "Orientation Registration Form". If you do not receive a confirmation email for New Hire Orientation registration, or have additional questions about signing up, please contact EmployeeOnboarding@du.edu.
Orientations are now Hybrid
Orientation are typically scheduled on the first and third Monday, unless it falls on a university holiday. New hires are emailed details based on the modality (remote or in-person) they are enrolled in by their supervisor. In-person attendees will receive a parking pass and lunch (RSVP required). Please keep in mind we close registrations on the Wednesday before orientation.
