Welcome to the university where innovation is UNLEASHED. 

New employee orientation

New employee orientation (NEO) is our way of welcoming you to the VCU community and positioning you to be a high performing, continuously learning contributor and partner. NEO is a one and a half day event where new employees will network with new colleagues, university leaders, internal partners from key departments, and subject matter experts. We provide you with information, tools and resources to take care of important decisions and initial tasks, enabling you to then focus on learning your new job and getting acquainted with the VCU community. You’ll leave NEO with a deeper understanding of the university, the higher education system, and how to gain the most from your employment with VCU. 

VCU is a great place to work where you are valued, able to perform meaningful work, and have a tremendous number of resources on hand to support your success and help your career thrive. 

Additionally, VCU offers an expansive array of benefits that include comprehensive health care and retirement offerings. Some examples include:

  • a robust career development program
  • well-being resources and activities
  • generous employee leave and alternative work arrangements
  • a multitude of employee discounts

There’s a lot to learn about VCU and all it offers. Whether you are a first-time VCU employee, or are a returning VCU employee, consider NEO as just one of the many ways you will start to learn about, or be refreshed on, the numerous benefits of working at VCU.
