Getting oriented to your department and the University is a process. It takes time and a little planning to get up to speed so you can start contributing to your department's success. Some of the most important information to have is whom to contact with questions about policies, benefits, payroll, performance management and similar types of information. You should complete the Departmental Orientation Checklist with your supervisor the first day in your department. This checklist covers a variety of topics (including issuance of ID cards, reviewing parking information, reviewing University and departmental policies and procedures, explaining the roles of the new employee and the department) that meet your basic needs and also provide a foundation for understanding how your department and the University operate.
