New Employee Orientation

Welcome to the University of California Office of the President (UCOP). As a new employee at one of the nation’s top research and teaching universities, you have a world of opportunity ahead of you. We offer regular orientation sessions designed to give you a brief overview and understanding of UC and UCOP and the tools and resources to assist you in navigating your way around UCOP.

We encourage you to sign up and attend a session as soon as possible after beginning work at UCOP to hear from senior leaders, gain an understanding of your benefits and meet others that have chosen to begin their careers here.

Employees who are unable to attend the new employee orientation can access benefits information and other employee resources on the Local Human Resources website and in Navigating UCOP: A Quick Reference Guide.

NOTE: Please make sure you have sign up for your benefits before your PIE (period of eligibility) ends, which is 31 days from your date of hire.  Please contact the benefits department as they will be able to explain all the various plans and benefit options. Failure to understand your options may result in permanent loss or reduction of benefits.  You can reach the Benefits Office from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at 987-0900.

Session details

New Employee Orientation is offered once a month from 9:00 am until 1:40 pm, with lunch provided. All sessions are held in the Franklin Building at 1111 Franklin Street in Oakland. (If you need to gain access to the Franklin building, please email Sherry Perocier).
