New Employee Guide


Welcome to Sewanee and the University of the South!

We are excited that you will be joining our community. Please use the following guide to help make your introduction to the University and campus life as smooth and easy as possible. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Career Bands for Staff Positions

Complete your employment paperwork.

Visit the Human Resources Office (380 University Avenue) to complete your paperwork. You will need to complete an I-9, a W-4, a direct deposit form, and others. The I-9 form requires specific documents. Please check the I-9 List of Accepted Documents. The original documents are required. Copies will not be accepted.

Faculty/Staff ID card

After your meeting with Human Resources, you will be directed to the Telecommunications department to obtain your Faculty/Staff ID. Smile for the camera!

Parking Registration

All students, faculty, and staff are required to register their cars with the Sewanee Police Department. To do so, simply visit the SPD (located between The University Archives and Snowden Hall) with your Faculty/Staff ID card and complete a registration form. Your parking sticker must be placed on the rear left bumper of your vehicle. There is no registration fee for employees.

Benefits Meeting

Within the first 30 days of employment, you must meet with the Benefits Manager to discuss your benefits. Our current Benefits Manager is Sallie Green. Please contact her at sgreen@sewanee.edu or 931.598.1213 to schedule your appointment.
