New Employee Welcome (NEW) Partnership-Sponsorship

​Our goal at Dallas College is to make sure our new employees have an opportunity to meet all our wonderful partners that support our students and employees. This includes giving our new employees the chance to learn of the many benefits that your organization can offer them. To build this relationship, our Learning and Development department within Human Resources would like to form partnerships with external sponsors to support engagement and foster a culture of learning.​

The “New Employee Welcome” (NEW) emphasizes thoughtful discussion, peer engagement, and a variety of activities designed to express personal values. All new full-time employees (including faculty, staff, and administrators) are invited to attend this monthly experience. Employees must be provided an opportunity to learn from each other, form new relationships, and apply personal strengths to solve challenges. The event incorporates executive guest speakers such as the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Vice Provost, and other executive directors. Opportunities for vendor engagement are currently scheduled before attendees break for lunch and could last for up to a 15-minute presentation.

Below are multiple sponsorship options available to you as a sponsor. We also offer the opportunity for your organization to do an in-kind sponsorship or customize a sponsorship package to fit your needs.
