New Employee Orientation

New employees at the University of the District of Columbia are invited to attend New Hire Orientation (NEO), typically held twice per month from 9:30 a.m. to noon. However, you must be scheduled to attend; we may not be able to accommodate unscheduled attendees. The orientation includes a history of the University, welcome from University administration, review  of various campus policies relevant to staff, overview of benefit options and wellness programs, and a walking tour (or video tour, depending on the weather) of the campus.

About a week before the orientation date, supervisors will receive an e-mail to let them know that their new employee is scheduled to attend orientation on that given date. If there is a time conflict or the new employee is unable to attend, the supervisor should respond to the email at that time and reschedule orientation for a later date. A few days prior to the orientation date, the new employee will receive an email about the new hire orientation, where it will be held, and what to expect during the orientation.

Below are dates for new hire orientation. All dates are subject to change. If you have questions about NEO, please contact Lynnleigh Harriston at lynnleigh.harriston@udc.edu.
