New staff

Next session
As a new staff member you will get in-depth guidance on core aspects of the University's policy and processes. Existing staff who may have missed out previously are also invited to attend.
The aim of the half-day orientation program is to help you as a new staff member to settle comfortably into your job by:
  • formally welcoming you to the University
  • providing an overview of the University's mission and structure
  • informing you about the many of the opportunities, services and facilities available
  • providing an opportunity for you to meet some of the University's senior staff members as well as other new staff members.
Morning tea is provided and an optional tour of the University. It is anticipated that all new staff will attend this Staff Orientation.
