While this handbook should give you answers to most of the general questions you might have about Rensselaer’s programs and procedures, it cannot cover every situation that might arise. If you have questions about these guidelines or need further information about any subject, please consult with your supervisor or the Division of Human Resources.

We also welcome your suggestions for improvements to programs covered in this handbook or in other job related areas. Your ideas on ways to improve our operations and procedures are important to us, and, along with your effort and performance, are an ideal way to contribute to the Institute’s future growth and your own development.

Once again, I welcome you and wish you success as we turn to face the numerous challenges, opportunities, an potential rewards ahead.

Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson
