Welcome to CIRES! We're glad you're here. 

This page answers frequently asked questions and points you to new employee resources. If you can’t find what you need, the CIRES HR team is available to guide you and answer any questions you may have. 

Below please go through action items and resources for all CIRES employees. Many resources are from CU Boulder, because all CIRES employees are CU Boulder employees. NOAA-based CIRES employees can find out about additional onboarding needs in the "NOAA-specific info" tab below.
