Congratulations on your recent appointment as a new faculty member at Western Carolina University! This page is designed to provide you with current information regarding your employment at WCU including compliance training requirements and benefits programs that are available to you. Please review the Benefits Orientation prior to the on campus Fall faculty orientation program in August. Remember, if you know what benefits selections you would like to make, many can be done completely through the online links. Others you may complete the forms online, print them out and bring them with you to orientation.
New Employee Online Orientation Information
Below are your new employee online power point presentations.
The first presentation is "Benefits Orientation" and includes vital information about your benefit options. Once you open the presentation, view in "full screen". You can choose this view by either left clicking inside the slide and choosing "full screen" or choose that option from the "browse" drop down menu at the top. This will make navigation easier for you. There are links in the presentation that allow you to complete and print forms for your selections and instructions as to what ones to bring with you to the new Fall faculty orientation event in August, and what ones you can complete totally on line.
The second presentation is "Basic Orientation" and includes several mandatory compliance modules. When you open this presentation, be sure to choose "view show" from the "slide show" drop down menu at the top. This will activate the links in the show for you. You will be required to print, sign and forward an acknowledgement form for each of those modules to Human Resources by October 15th.
Again, congratulations and welcome to Western! If you need additional information or have questions, please call us at (828) 227-7218 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
