Human Resources conducts orientation sessions to help new staff and faculty 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 submit benefits enrollment paperwork within your first 30 days.
- New Faculty are required to attend a Human Resources benefits orientation. The Academic Provost’s Office also conducts orientations for new faculty, along with other new-faculty workshops and events throughout the year.
- New Staff are typically required to attend employment orientation, the university welcome, and benefits orientation. Please check your new hire offer letter for information on which orientation sessions you are required to attend.
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. Please note, benefit enrollment forms must be submitted to Human Resources within 30 days of your hire date.
Employment orientation introduces new staff to important university policies, programs, and websites. New staff will learn about the forms and processes that they need to complete within the first few days and weeks of their employment.
Human Resources hosts a quarterly university welcome session to introduce new staff to USF, including:
*USF Vision, Mission and Values
*GoUSF Wellness Program
*Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach
All upcoming sessions will take place from 9:00am - 11:30am:
- Thursday, October 1, 2015: McLaren 252

Before attending the University Welcome, please watch The Olive video (below) and a required Title IX video.
The Olive video is an animation based on the life of the founder of the Jesuit order, St. Ignatius of Loyola. It was written, produced, and narrated by Jason Kapell, of the Fairfield University Media Center.
