Congratulations and welcome to GRCC! We are thrilled to have you as part of our diverse, hardworking, excellent, thriving and innovative Community College!

As a new employee, we are here to help you grow as part of our community, so please let us know how we can help you with whatever questions you have. You can email Angela Salinas at or call (616) 234-2567. We are not just here to orient you to our college, we are here to integrate you into our community!

What to expect on your first day

Please come to the DeVos Campus, Administration Building at 415 East Fulton Ave. NE. You can park behind the building in any two-hour visitor parking spot. An employee will greet you at the top of the stairs.

Our first stop in New Employee Onboarding will be at the Information Technology (IT) department within Sneden Hall to get your computer and technology needs met and questions answered. You will receive your login information,create a few different passwords for our computer and email system, and learn a few tips and tricks as well.

Afterwards, we will hop on our Sneden Shuttle to take us to the Main campus. We will take a short tour up the Commons before heading over to the GRCC Police Department to get your parking assignment, applicable keys, and have a talk with one of our GRCC Police Officers regarding safety on campus and what services our GRCC Police Department offers.

Then we will stop by our Student Life Office to get your new Raider Card (your Employee ID). We do ask that employees wear their IDs at all times when on campus to help the GRCC Police, fellow employees, and students easily identify employees.

Next, we will stop at the Quiet Cafe for coffee and discuss important aspects of the college, as well as ways to get involved!

Finally, we  will stop back at Human Resources so you may meet with your Generalist and turn in your paperwork.

Afterwards, you'll be able to head to your new work area and get started on your new and exciting career!

Compliance Training

We ask that new employees review/complete various compliance trainings. You will receive an email from Human Resources with further instructions.

New Employee Checklist

We want to ensure that you, as a new employee, feel welcome and are certain of your new role and surroundings. Therefore, we have developed a checklist of helpful items that your supervisor will connect with you on regularly throughout your first few weeks at the college.
