New Employee Welcome Page

The New Employee Welcome and Orientation, hosted by Human Resources (HR), provides you with a comprehensive introduction to employment and benefits at The University of Texas at Austin. If you're a new permanent, benefits-eligible staff, faculty, or graduate-student employee, we strongly encourage you to view this orientation on your first day of employment in order to complete many items on the New Employee Checklist. New faculty members who begin employment in the fall semester may also attend the New Faculty Symposium, which is hosted by the Center for Teaching and Learning each August.

This program provides an introduction to the university's culture, values, history, services, resources, and benefits, including insurance and retirement programs in which eligible employees may enroll.
