Welcome to Colorado State University!

You are invited to attend the University Employee Orientation, designed to provide helpful information about the CSU community. University Employee Orientation is scheduled on a monthly basis. We recommend you attend Orientation within your first two months of full-time employment at CSU.

By attending University Employee Orientation, you will:

  • Gain a sense of the CSU community and culture.
  • Learn about CSU’s land-grant mission, history, and vision for the future.
  • Receive a variety of information, including University resources, policies, and campus safety.
  • Network with new employees across campus.
  • Learn about services and discounts available to CSU employees.


Registration is required to attend.

Orientation is not about the Employee Benefits Package

Please note: Employee Benefits information will not be covered in University Employee Orientation. For questions about employee benefit plans for health, dental, disability, retirement, and life insurance, visit www.hrs.colostate.edu or call (970) 491-6947.

Learning the “CSU Language”

CSU staff members frequently use a lot of acronyms when communicating, whether for departments, accounting terms, buildings, and more. The online Acronym List is a useful tool.
