New Employee Orientation

After you are hired as a new employee of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, you will attend new employee orientation. In new employee orientation, you will get an overview of university policies, benefit programs offered to you and your eligible dependents and the chance to ask any questions that you may have about the university.


New Employee Orientation is hosted every other week. We encourage new employees to attend as soon as possible after beginning work at UMKC.

Parking can be found in the Cherry Street Parking Structure just north of the Administrative Center. Metered parking is located on the fifth level of the parking structure along with a pedestrian walkway that will lead you to a walking path to the Administrative Center. The metered parking area is highlighted in yellow on our campus map (see attached). You are welcome to park at the metered parking without paying your first day. Please stop by the Parking Office (Administrative Center Room 221) to sign up for your parking hangtag if you plan to park on campus during your employment. You will need your car’s license plate number for this, so please have it handy.


You must bring 2 forms of ID, as we will need them for your I-9 paperwork. Example of ID’s that would work would be Driver’s License and Social Security card. If you are not able to bring these items on your first day, please notify me immediately.

New Employee Paperwork

You are required to complete online hiring documents before beginning employment. You will receive an email from “no-reply UM System” with a subject line of “Welcome to Univ. of MO” within the next 24 -48 hours. This email will give you information about entering in the last required documents of your hire. You should receive this email within 24-48 hours depending on when the department processes and approves. If you do not, please contact 855 524-0002 or

Who Is My HR Facilitator/HR Business Partner?

HR Facilitators (HRFs)/ HR Business Partners (HRBPs) are department/unit/division representatives who handle the primary communication and processing of human resource related activity for their respective department. They may also provide oversight and instruction to other unit staff that provide transactional support such as processing personnel actions and payroll. The HRF provides overall guidance and a wide range of human resource services to managers, supervisors and individual employees in accordance with university and unit policies and practices in support of the goals of the unit.  The HRF is a resource for Human Resources (HR) related information, has experience handling employment and work related matters, and will answer questions in these areas as well as act as a liaison with HR for guidance and support, as necessary.
