Staff Orientation Sign-Up (Campus)

Department Orientation

Department orientation is critical because it directly impacts a staff member's performance and contribution to the department and to Duke. Visit the Orientation web site for tips on successfully orienting new staff to your department.


Effective, August 1, 2023 HR Reps and hiring managers will no longer use this site to register a new hire for University New Hire Orientation (campus employees).

University New Hire Orientation (for CAMPUS Only) registration has moved to the Learning Management System (LMS) and all registrations must occur in the LMS. This will require new hires to have an active Duke NetID.

How do you register a new employee for Orientation?

  1. Please contact DHTS via email, at with the subject line "Registrar access for University New Hire Orientation (campus Only)" to request Registrar credentials.
  2. Then follow the easy, step-by-step instructions in the Duke LMS – Registrar Instructions Guide for enrolling new hires in the LMS.

Managers should complete these two tasks:

  1. Use the form below to register staff for the orientation welcome event. All staff members are required to attend orientation.
  2. Send your new hire this information about benefits - this is vital to their onboarding. Benefits are NOT reviewed during Orientation. New hires are now automatically signed up for the Duke Benefits Overview training module in the LMS as soon as their hiring is processed in HR Systems. If your new hire provided you with a personal email, please email that address in addition to their Duke email. New hires have 30 days to enroll in benefit plans counting from their date of hire.
