The comprehensive overview of the CU system was great!

Summer 2021 New Hire

I found the modules to be very helpful, I appreciated the ability to come and go from them as needed. I was able to take the course at a pace that worked for me. I thought the modules were well organized and the order made sense.

Our New Employee Orientation (NEO) welcomes faculty and staff to the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus. The orientation will cover topics such as CU history, structure, policies and more. NEO is hosted through Canvas, an online learning system. The Canvas course has several modules for new hires to complete and is self-paced. The day/time you select during registration is just the time they will gain access to the Canvas course. After that time, they are welcome to complete the orientation as their schedule allows. We estimate it will take approximately 3 hours to complete the course. There is an additional Benefits Orientation that could take an additional hour. This orientation is not associated with our office, but we provide links to it in our NEO Canvas course. All new employees are expected to complete NEO within their first 31 days to comply with university expectations. If you are a new employee - please contact your supervisor or department's HR Business Partner; new employees should not register themselves.
