Benefits and HR Information

You are encouraged to complete your employment paperwork before attending New Faculty Orientation. You should receive a request to complete employment onboarding by email with the subject “Welcome to the University of Missouri!”

If you do not receive this email within five days of the completion of your criminal background check, please follow up with your department’s Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP). 

Once you complete the electronic paperwork and supply us with all requested supporting documentation, the process to create your employment record will begin. You will not be able to access UMKC webmail, One Canvas or other online tools necessary to establish your teaching and research programs until Human Resources receives your completed employment forms and supporting documentation.
