What is orientation?

New Staff Orientation is held six times per year for full-time and part-time staff.  The orientation format is a two-hour session with optional campus tour that covers Bentley programs, services, history, and culture while also providing you an opportunity to meet and engage with other new members of the Bentley community. In addition to an Executive Welcome by a member of the President’s Cabinet, presenters also cover key information on campus safety, diversity and inclusion, and sustainability, cyber security, and others. 

New Staff Hires* are notified of their orientation date on their offer letter and will receive an official RSVP and more information about the session in an email from HR Learning & Development.
