What is the TCNJ Onboarding Process?

Onboarding at TCNJ is the process through which new employees acquire the necessary knowledge and behaviors to become effective and successful members of the campus community. The Onboarding process is much more than an orientation program, and consists of six to twelve months of information sharing, training, mentoring, and coaching throughout the employee’s transition. Please view this presentation on: Onboarding a New Employee


Onboarding Matters @ TCNJ

  • Role Integration: Ensuring the new member of the campus community is effectively trained, prepared, and equipped with the resources to perform effectively in his/her role
