It will include interactive presentations, activities and discussions designed to:

  • Strengthen their connection to the JMU community by meeting and networking with new colleagues from across the university
  • Gain an understanding of the university’s mission, values and strategic plan and how employees contribute to JMU’s vision of becoming the national model of the engaged university
  • Discover JMU’s history and how it influences our campus culture
  • Hear about resources that support their career development
  • Learn about campus activities, discounts, benefits and services available to them as a JMU employee

The event concludes with a complimentary lunch provided by Aramark to celebrate and welcome the employees to JMU.
