New Faculty and Staff Orientation

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point! We are very excited to have you join our campus community and we look forward to supporting you as you begin your work at UW-Stevens Point.

For the most part, if you are a new Faculty or Staff member, you will learn much of what you need to know from your immediate colleagues, co-workers, and supervisor. However, we have assembled a variety of resources that we think will be useful as you begin your work at UWSP.

If you are new to UW-Stevens Point, please take a look at the Starting at UWSP webpages on the Human Resources and Affirmative Action website to ensure you have completed the required paperwork (employment, payroll, benefits) and get access to a variety of information and resources to help you become acquainted with UW-Stevens Point and the area.

Finally, to support the University's goal to foster an inclusive environment, you will receive emails from Workplace Answers to complete compliance trainings within about a month of your hire date. Complete the trainings within 30 days of registration. If you have questions, please contact Human Resources and Affirmative Action at 715-346-2606 or
