For new FAS Employees:


The FAS Onboarding Toolkit contains the following resources for onboarding a new employee to the FAS.

Administrators and hiring mangers are responsible for ensuring their new employee is added to University's Covid testing program. Please follow the instuctions on the Adding or Changing an individual in the University's testing program webpage to add your new employee to the testing program before their start date.

For information specific to onboarding a new Faculty member, please visit the comprehensive Onboarding Overview for New Faculty guide on the FAS Faculty Resources website.

 

For new FAS Person of Interest (POI) affiliations:

 

To request a Person of Interest (POI) affiliation role, use the POI Portal web application. POI roles are given to non-FAS employees such as a vendor,  tenant, or volunteer for access into FAS buildings or to FAS resources. Most benefits eligible staff are granted access to the portal to request a POI after a short, required POI Policy trainingDepartment Administrators act as approvers for POIs in FAS. For more information, review the University POI Policy and visit the POI Portal Knowledge Base.  

Administrators and hiring mangers are responsible for ensuring any POI with an on-campus presence is added to University's Covid testing program. Please follow the instuctions on the Adding or Changing an individual in the University's testing program webpage to add your POI to the testing program before their start date. 

Please note: if your new POI will require a Harvard ID card, submit the request 2 - 3 days prior to their anticipated arrival at the ID office.  The Harvard ID office will not be able to create an ID card for a POI requested same-day.

For new Employee Orientation and Review:
