New Hire Orientation

New staff members are invited to participate in New Hire Orientation. This formal welcome to the university will introduce you to the many resources available to you as a member of the Carnegie Mellon community.

During the two-hour program, you will:

  • Discuss how your new role fits into the university’s mission and vision
  • Meet with representatives from many departments and learn how they can support you
  • Learn about important policies and procedures
  • Meet other new staff members

You are encouraged to participate in New Hire Orientation within your first 30 days at Carnegie Mellon. You are also encouraged to review the New Hire Resources.
