The twofold mission of the Human Resources department is (1) to attract and retain highly qualified and diverse faculty and staff, which is critical to maintaining our academic standard of excellence, and (2) to retain and develop a talented workforce while providing the best possible employee workplace experience.

We are committed to affirming the dignity of all people, serving as advocates for staff and faculty at all levels, encouraging staff to develop the requisite skills for professional development, advocating for the understanding of all perspectives, and supporting the resolution of conflict.
