I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Northern Michigan University. This new employee orientation program has been designed to assist you in becoming familiar with the university and some of your resources as a faculty or staff member.  It contains information which I hope will help orient you in your new position and serve as a reference for the future.

Marquette and Northern Michigan University are known for being friendly and welcoming places to live and work.  I hope you will take advantage of a variety of opportunities to meet other members of the university community and ask any questions you may have about Northern and the vital role we play in the Upper Peninsula region.

In the meantime, don't hesitate to consult with your department head, supervisor, or other NMU colleagues to get answers to how things work and what’s important (the students!). I also encourage you to contact the Human Resources Department if you have any questions regarding employment, payroll, or benefits-related matters.  Once again, welcome.  We are glad you have chosen to join us, and I wish you every success in your new position! 

Rhea Dever
Assistant Vice President of Human Resources
