New Employee Orientation

Orientation is required of all newly hired regular PCC employees and is accomplished in several stages.

Two-Day Introduction (Staff)

This first stage includes an overview of PCC and the College’s database system.  Personal payroll, benefits and technology accounts are created for the employee, so s/he can report to the work site with those accounts already set up.

Faculty Learning Academy (Full-time Faculty)

Sponsored by the Provost's office, Faculty Learning Academy is a year-long program that includes an assigned veteran faculty member mentor.  It kicks off each academic year with a 2-3 day session before the start of classes.  Other check-in and informational meetings are held throughout the year. 

Essential Learning Workshops

All employees are required to complete "essential learning" workshops available in person and/or online.  Topics change based on organizational review and need.  Employees receive instructions on topics during the Oboarding process.  Current topics include:

  • Onboarding - College Overview (online course)
  • Nepotism and Conflict of Interest (online course)
  • FERPA for Higher Education (online course)
  • TitleIX for Higher Education (online course)
  • Security Awareness Videos (online course)
  • Recognizing Drug and Alcohol Impairment (instructor-led workshop)
  • Active Shooter - Campus (online course)

Supervisor/Leader Workshops

Another stage focuses on supervisors and those who lead or aspire to lead others.  Each workshop series is titled to correspond with the roles and responsibilities of the position.  Employees can find workshop descriptions in MyCareerCenter.

  • Faculty Learning Academy
  • Faculty Leadership
  • Supervision 101
  • Supervision in the 21st Century
  • Leadership Academy

Administrators and staff directors complete their essential topics over the course of 18 - 24 months; staff and faculty complete their essential learning over the course of their first year of employment.
