New Employee Orientation

Welcome to RIT! Our New Employee Orientation program is an exciting one day event to help acclimate new employees to our university!

On this day, you will participate in a detailed discussion surrounding the RIT core values, as well as learn some of RIT's exciting history! We will navigate the university's colleges and divisions, review and show you where to find essential information regarding RIT's institute policies and procedures, and answer any questions you may have. Next will be RIT's Policy on Prohibiting Harassment and Discrimination, which is required for all RIT employees. Then you will take the required Early Intervention Program Training, and the final session will be a Benefits Orientation.

In addition we have the RIT Compliance and Conflict of Interest Training online. This session is also required for all RIT employees.
