On or Before Your First Day

Get Tested for COVID-19

When you arrive at Human Resources to complete your new hire documents, you will be tested for COVID-19.

We ask that you do not eat, drink or use tobacco products for thirty (30) minutes prior to arriving.

To complete the form, you will need your Banner ID, your Sewanee email, and your vehicle's make, model, and tag number. The parking sticker must be placed on the rear bumper of your vehicle. There is no registration fee for employees. 

During Your First 30 Days

Within the first 30 days of employment, you must meet with Human Resources to discuss the benefits for which you are eligible, if any. Contact Chris Champion, Benefits Administrator, or schedule an appointment directly.

Within your first month, you must attend New Hire Training, normally scheduled for the last week of each month. Human Resources will contact you a week in advance of the next available training date with details. If you have any prior questions, please contact us Jacqueline Blair.


Update: Following appropriate well-being protocols during the COVID-19 outbreak, we have cancelled all in-person New Hire Training sessions; however, we will be scheduling virtual sessions as soon as we are able.

We encourage you to become familiar with the physical place in which we all work as it shapes the community of which we are all a part. 

During Your First 180 Days

Get Settled

New employees should use their first six months to attend training, get to know the campus community and its members, and engage in continual dialogue with their supervisor and colleagues.
