About HR

We are a staff of dedicated human resources professionals who support the mission of the university by developing and implementing strategic human resources policies, programs and practices.

Our mission is to support the university's effort in attracting, developing, retaining, and engaging a high-performing workforce that's devoted to excellence while promoting diversity, equity, civility, and respect.

We are committed to an ongoing collaboration with all members of the university community. The university has nine academic divisions, served by three divisional human resources offices. Within human resources, there are six primary areas of responsibility: Benefits and Human Resources Shared Services; Compensation and Human Resources Information Services; Employment Services; Employee and Labor Relations; Talent Management and Organizational Development; and Work, Life and Engagement. There are also a number of committees within the human resources department, in place to help further the department's work. Learn more about what human resources committees are in place.

In addition to the primary areas of human resources responsibilities, our team has developed a system of HRmetrics to provide information about university human capital and associated costs that are crucial to know when senior leadership makes important business plans and decisions.
