The New Hires Institute is a year-long, equity-centered onboarding program designed to welcome new employees (Classified Professionals, Faculty, and Supervisors) to the City College community by providing opportunities to learn about our campus-  its mission, culture, structure, policies, services, and, most importantly, our students and the roles we have in helping them succeed.


The program consists of the following:

  • Two-hour, bi-monthly meetings (see Schedule below for dates and times)

  • Online course in Canvas
    • There will be readings, and non-graded/non-mandatory reflection assignments after each meeting to help reinforce the information shared by the presenters. There will also be place for resources, as well as discussion forums where members of the Institute can ask/answer questions and share information.

  • Culminating project
    • New employees are required to work together throughout the year to create a culminating project that is a contribution to the campus. More information will be provided at the first meeting.


Most meetings will take place on alternating Thursdays, from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM, and will be added to employees' Outlook calendar. Members of the Institute will be notified if there are changes to the schedule.
