All CIEP staff attend an annual orientation at the beginning of the academic year. The orientation provides information to the staff about curriculum, policies, procedures, and other important information. It is an opportunity to norm staff regarding requirements and outcomes necessary to pass classes in CIEP and to update employees about any changes to the program made in the past year. Below are a variety of guides and resources that are important for all new and current staff members.  If you have any questions about staff orientation, please contact the CIEP: ciep@uni.edu.  
You can also find more information about being a P&S employee on the UNI Human Resources website.  If you are interested in attending a UNI New Employee Orientation, visit the UNI New Hire Orientation page to register.

This is the presentation given to all new CIEP staff members during orientation.  The presentation contains information about the CIEP staff structure, tasks for instructors, timecard information, the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), classroom procedures and policies, forms and surveys, academic probation policies and performance appraisals.

The CIEP uses Smartsheet to maintain student records including midterm progress and final grade reports.  During orientation, staff will be trained on how to use the Smartsheet software.

CIEP Instructional staff will be able to use UNI's e-Learning system for their classes.  Instructors also use faculty center to record grades, view class rosters and more.

All UNI students and staff have a Google Calendar attached to his or her UNI email account. View the CIEP Google Calendar Guide here.

All instructional staff in CIEP have access to the CIEP discussion forum, which serves as a place for all staff to ask questions and collaborate with other staff members.  The forum is in the UNI eLearning course system. This forum also has a variety of articles and information shared by other staff.  View a guide to using the forum here.
