welcome to une

Welcome to the University of New England. Beginning a new job can be a daunting experience. The information in this section, along with the information provided to you by your department, is designed to assist your transition to your new position and the University.

Initial Essentials

Benefit Eligible Faculty and Professional Staff

Initial paperwork is completed through the UNE People Admin Records portal. Information on how to access the portal will be communicated in a separate email. Completion of these forms is the basis for establishing systems access and it is therefore recommended to complete them promptly.

Benefit elections will also be made through the People Admin Record portal. Before making those elections, be sure to review Benefits Resources for New Hires.

Adjunct Faculty and Part-Time or Temporary Professional Staff

Initial paperwork needs to be completed in order to establish system access. Completing paperwork early and returning the packet to your hiring supervisor or Human Resources facilitates systems set up.

You will need to present appropriate original documentation to an authorized representative of the university (supervisor, human resources representative, or other designated individual) to finalize your packet.

General Resources

Orientation and Required Training

Orientation and required training connect you to information, policies, and training required by various regulatory agencies. All employees, and any employee/volunteer working in sensitive areas (such as labs), or needing access to student information and systems, are required to complete training. Available 24/7 through online modules, training is assigned once you have appropriate computer access and varies based on your specific role and status within the University and complements explanations that you will receive from your manager and mentors.

Orientation and training communications are distributed through University email once you have system access. The HR Compliance Training Guide (PDF) answers many of the compliance training related questions you may have.

You may also want to access to the policy handbooks below for other important information.
