Human Resources: New Employee Orientation
Welcome to the University of Portland! As a new employee, you have a world of opportunities ahead of you working for one of the top ten universities in the West.
On your first day as a University employee, an I-9 must be filled out in the Office of Human Resources. You must bring current and original documentation which establishes employee identity and employment eligibility.
New Employee Orientation is available for new part-time and full-time employees. Please see below for details and upcoming Orientation dates.
New Employee Orientation includes information on UP's history, values, campus resources, Campus Ministry, Payroll, Information Services, Public Safety and an in-depth overview of employee benefits (for full-time employees). Orientation sessions are typically held twice a month in the 5th floor conference room in Waldschmidt Hall. Also please visit the Employee Resources page to learn more about the University of Portland community and helpful information to use in the workplace.
New employees are eligible for health and dental insurance coverage beginning the first of the month following their date of hire. New faculty members will receive this information during their faculty orientation through the Office of the Provost the August before they begin work.New Employee Checklist
