New Employee Orientations

gleeson library

Human Resources conducts orientation sessions to help new faculty and staff get connected to the community and processes at USF. We recommend attending orientation during your first week so that you have the information required to complete benefits enrollment within your first 30 days. 

NOTE: Full-time faculty orientations only take place in August every year prior to the start of the new academic year. If you are a new full-time faculty member who has been hired after the start of the academic year, please sign up for the staff orientation.

Employment and Benefits Orientation

Employment orientation introduces new employees to important university policies, programs, and websites. New employees will learn about the forms and processes that they need to complete within the first few days and weeks of their employment. Please contact if you have any questions.

The benefits orientation provides benefits-eligible faculty and staff with an overview of all benefits options available at the university. The benefits orientation has been designed to ensure new faculty and staff have enough information to make informed decisions about the coverage they need. You must enroll for your benefits within 30 days of your hire date. Please contact the Benefits Team at if you have any questions.
