Human Resources

The Office of Human Resources embarked upon an inclusive process to re-invent ourselves and enhance customer service.  We came together to develop our mission: “Bridging Life’s Transitions.”

From recruitment to retirement and everything in between, we impact the personal and professional lives of faculty and staff in meaningful and significant ways. We are committed to providing services that support faculty and staff. These services also extend beyond the workplace with programs such as the Employee Assistance Program. We believe that healthy and happy employees are productive employees and are better able to carry out the university’s mission.

Our goal is to be recognized as a standard of excellence within the California State University System.
