Welcome & Introduction to the Employee Handbook

It is a pleasure to welcome you as part of the Centenary University community. You will play an important role at the University, no matter what position you hold. You will, in some way, have contact with students whose education is our purpose. Without realizing it, you may have significant impact on the growth and development of students. You will be seen as a role model or perhaps as the helpful individual who took the extra time to listen or made an extra effort to assist a student. This is what makes employment at Centenary University special. You are part of a dedicated team of professionals who seek to serve the University community in the best possible way. Together we strive to make Centenary University the best that it can be.

The Employee Handbook is designed to introduce you to the University’s expectations and policies as they relate to employment here at the University. It is important for you to be familiar with the information in the Handbook. Please review it carefully. As the guideline to current Human Resources Department policies and practices, this information supersedes any such guidelines previously published. Since this Handbook is a guideline, it is not intended to address all of the possible questions that may arise. After you have consulted the appropriate section of the Employee Handbook, should you still have questions, please ask your Supervisor or contact the Human Resources Department.

Again, welcome to Centenary University and we wish you much success as you begin your career here with us.

Please note, the Handbook is not a contract, nor is it an invitation to contract. Nothing in the Handbook is intended to create or imply contract rights. Centenary University retains the unilateral right to change or withdraw any and all policies and procedures at any time. The policies and procedures described herein will be amended by the University President, Executive Staff and/or Board of Trustees as deemed necessary and to insure compliance with all applicable federal and state regulations and University operations.

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in the Employee Handbook. However, changes occur and errors are inadvertently made. Therefore, it is the employee’s responsibility to independently verify the accuracy and completeness of the information contained in this Handbook.
