Faculty & Staff Information
The purpose of the Office of Human Resources is to establish and administer effective programs to recruit, employ, develop, reward and retain qualified employees in support of the University's mission.
A primary objective of Human Resources is to promote a productive, discrimination/harassment-free work environment by: assuring compliance with employment laws and government regulations; providing leadership and employee training; and developing appropriate personnel policies and procedures.
Human Resources also functions to: interpret University personnel policies and procedures for all employees; assist supervisors in becoming better leaders; facilitate professional development; manage and communicate the University's compensation and benefits programs; direct a performance management system that includes accurate job descriptions, timely feedback and effective performance evaluations for all employees; and promote a positive, caring work culture through mutual understanding and professional respect.
Finally, the Office of Human Resources is a place where employees may speak freely in confidence, find answers to employment-related questions and, when appropriate, seek mediation and/or other assistance with employment issues.
