Welcome to the university

The New Employee Welcome Experience is the first event in a comprehensive, year-long onboarding experience designed to increase the understanding of CU Boulder’s culture, organizational structure and governance, operations, learning mission, values and campus initiatives. The program is offered to new, permanent employees. This program is recommended for employees in their first 30-45 days of employment.

The day-long New Employee Welcome Experience event will orient new employees to CU Boulder. The event starts at Norlin Library in the historic heart of campus, where participants begin to develop their understanding of what it means to be a member of the CU Boulder community. The day includes a two-hour walking tour of campus and a one-hour bus tour broken into two portions throughout the day. Lunch is provided by Elevations Credit Union and print materials are provided by CU Imaging Services (your campus printer). 

During the session, participants also receive information about additional events in the year-long comprehensive onboarding experience.
