Allegany College of Maryland welcomes you as a member of our team. We are an institution committed to achieving excellence. We believe strongly that the achievement of the institution's goals is dependent upon maintaining the excellence of our employees and the supportive environment that ACM provides for them.
We know that beginning a new job can be an overwhelming experience. We have the Welcome Guide available for all new employees. This guidebook is simply meant to provide a generalized overview of college procedures and services that may seem new and overwhelming at first. Some jobs may require more in-depth training or orientation in specific areas. Your individual supervisor and mentor can provide additional guidance tailored to your specific setting.
