Human Resources


The Office of Human Resources is committed to the University’s mission and to supporting a community of individuals who each play an important role to further the mission to advance knowledge, educate future leaders, and have a positive impact on the wider community.

Student Affairs HR takes pride in its continuing effort to build a multicultural professional community poised to serve a richly diversified student population. As one of the University’s most valuable resources, University employees demonstrate daily that they are motivated and engaged by the challenging and stimulating work that they do, no matter their role. We value and belong to a community where respect, teamwork, collaboration, diversity, and inclusion matter.
