New Hire Orientation
New employees at Rice University are invited to attend new hire orientation, typically held twice a month, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The orientation includes a history of the university, various campus policies relevant to staff, a speaker from Disability Support Services, and a walking tour (or video tour, depending on the weather) of the campus. Orientation ends with lunch at one of the campus serveries.
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 e-mail at that time and reschedule orientation for a later date. A few days prior to the orientation date, the new employee will receive an e-mail about the new hire orientation, where it will be held, and what to expect during the orientation.
Below are the dates for new hire orientation. All dates are subject to change. If you have any questions about the orientation, please contact Wiley Bennett at email@example.com.
