Getting Started at 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

Completing paperwork early facilitates systems set up. Although there will be other paperwork and processes that you will need to complete, the documents here help us get you set up in our systems sooner.

Orientation and Required Training

Orientation and required training connects you to information and policies that are important as you get started with the University, as well as resources you can reference throughout your employment. It also provides initial training required by various regulatory agencies. Your individual training is a combination of shared information and specific training based on your position classification. Our process complements explanations that you will receive from your manager and mentors.

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. You are expected to complete assigned orientation and training within 30 calendar days from your first day of work.

If you have questions regarding the courses assigned, or think that other training should have been assigned, please contact us at
