UCR Staff Orientation

Welcome! The UCR staff orientation program has a long history of quickly making new staff feel right at home in their new work environment. As a new employee, you are now part of what makes this University so great – the people! Staff Orientation is a great way to learn about the history of UC and UC Riverside, the mission of the University, our future goals, campus growth and much more. The orientation program provides this information and much more from various presenters in an engaging and interactive format.

Why You Should Attend

The more you know about UCR, the more you will benefit from the many opportunities available. Staff orientation also provides an opportunity for you to meet fellow colleagues and network. Employees from departments all over campus attend, so you will be able to add to your list of campus contacts and friends!

What to Expect

Participants will be served a light continental breakfast and a full lunch. Room temperatures vary, so you may want to bring a light jacket or a sweater. Print and post the UCR New Employee Orientation flyer.
