New Employee Orientation


Congratulations and Welcome to GRCC!

This page is for all new employees here at this fine institution.

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

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 us at or call 616-234-4285.

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 Cook Administration Building at 415 East Fulton Ave. NE.  You can park behind the building in any two hour Visitor parking spot.

The Staff Development office is located on the first floor in Room 100.  Use the parking lot entrance, and make an immediate turn to your left, before entering the second glass door that leads to the lobby. The Staff Development office is where your exciting and fun tour will start. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because we will be doing some walking around campus.

Our first stop in our New Employee Orientation will be at the Information Technology (IT) department to get your computer and technology needs met and questions answered.  You will receive your log-in information and create a few different passwords for our computer and email system.

Next we will hop on our Sneden Shuttle to take us to the main campus.  

We will take a tour of the campus and stop 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 Campus Police, fellow employees and students easily identify employees.

Following that, we will head over to the Campus Police Department to get your parking assignment.  We will also have a talk with one of our Campus Police Officers regarding safety on campus and what services our Campus Police Department offers.

To finish the Main campus tour, we will hop back on the Sneden Shuttle which will drop us back off at the DeVos Campus.

The last stop will be back at the Staff Development office so we can show you how to get paid for all of your hard work!  

After that - you'll be able to head to your new work area and get started on your new and exciting career!
