The Human Resources Department has restructured its "compensation", “recruitment" and "staffing” functions to align them with the University departments they serve. In doing so, we have created teams of Human Resources Generalists that in addition to being responsible for filling positions, serve as the “point of contact” for Schools/Colleges and administrative staff on all HR related matters. This model enables the HR Generalist teams to better understand the operations, needs and concerns of their client departments and supports a partnership between the two units.
Each team has a Director or Senior HR Generalist overseeing all Human Resources functions for their assigned areas. By utilizing a “team” concept, you will be able to get information from any team member if your HR Generalist is not available. We have provided a complete listing below of the HR Generalists along with a short "bio" explaining their areas of expertise:
