NEW Days

Date and Time


UC 430


NEW@the U

NEW Days are the kick-off to the NEW@the U (New Employee Welcome) program at the University of Guelph. One day at the beginning of 7 months of the year (excludes January, April, July, August and December) has been dedicated to welcoming and connecting our new employees to the University environment and give them a positive start.

New employees will encounter different members of the Uof G who will be contributing their expertise. There will be various activities and representatives from across campus who will share perspectives and important information that will introduce the new employee to university governance, culture, history, facilities and services. Required training elements from A.O.D.A. (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) and EHS (Environmental Health and Safety) will also be included.

The program is targeted toward new employees who are permanent, full-time or part-time staff or full-time with an appointment of greater than 6 months. However, any employee that can benefit is welcome to register.

Hiring Managers and HR Admins in units across campus are encouraged to share the registration link with their new hires.

Cancellation Policy: Please cancel no later than 2 days in advance to ensure we can give your spot to someone on the waiting list.
