Resources for Newly Hired Staff & Faculty

Your New Employee Experience

We have put together an onboarding experience to welcome you and familiarize you with our campus community.  You will start your experience in Human Resources where you will complete your initial paperwork and participate in a Benefits Orientation session. 

If you are a Staff member, you will be assigned a Blazer Buddy who will help guide you through your first year as a Hood employee. This individual will be your "go to" resources when you have questions and he/she will help connect you to the campus community.

If you are a Faculty Member, you will be assigned a Faculty mentor.

New to Higher Education?
