New Hires Institute

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


The program consists of the following:

  • Two-hour, monthly meetings

  • 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 will work together to create a culminating project that will be a contribution to the college. More information will be provided at the first meeting.


Most meetings will take place on Fridays, from 10:00 PM to 12:00 PM, and will be added to employees' Outlook calendar. Members of the New Hires Institute will be notified of changes to the schedule.
