Welcoming a New Class of Welcomers

IamtheU Class2

The second class of I am the U’s U Facilitators is ready to welcome the University’s newly hired employees.

The Talent and Organizational Development (TOD) Department recently welcomed its second class of U Facilitators for the University’s new I am the U employee orientation program developed from recommendations made by UM employees.

Designed by the Global Orientation work team through the Culture Transformation efforts of 2015, U Facilitators are volunteer staff who were selected through a rigorous audition process. They welcome new employees to the University twice a week, leading them through a full day of engaging, interactive, and collaborative activities and sharing with them the University’s DIRECCT Values, Common Purpose, and Service Standards.

In 2017, the TOD team successfully delivered more than 90 such sessions and welcomed over 3,000 new employees to the University of Miami.

If you are interested in joining the next class of U Facilitators, please visit I am the U online for more information, or email iamthe@miami.edu.
