New Employee Orientation and Welcome

Our new employee orientation program welcomes new faculty and staff to Christopher Newport through a unique and engaging experience. Whether we are discussing who we are, touring our beautiful campus or learning from different facilitators, our program covers the essentials and sets up new employees for success.

Orientation occurs regularly throughout the year and is typically hosted in the Office of Human Resources first-floor training room.

For questions regarding new employee orientation, please contact Human Resources at hr@cnu.edu or (757) 594-7145.

All Christopher Newport faculty and staff have access to the LinkedIn Learning platform and are able to explore the vast library of courses or specific learning paths developed by Christopher Newport.

Learning Center accounts for new employees are automatically created within 2–10 days of hire date. To receive your login information, use the “Forgot Login ID” and “Forgot Password” links on the log in page.
