Payroll Office

Human Resources

Faculty as employees are covered by University policies and procedures that pertain to all employees. In some areas, however, there are distinctions between staff employees and faculty employees regarding benefits, retirement, and employee relations.

Faculty: The Associate Vice President for Faculty on main campus and the Faculty Administration Office in the School of Medicine provide many HR types of functions, including the administration of appointments; faculty reviews, including Retention, Promotion, and Tenure and post-tenure; parental leaves; review of RPT criteria; and a role in faculty grievance processes.

University Human Resources administer the benefits package for all eligible employees, including faculty and staff.

In addition, HR provides advice/support arising out of the supervision and employment of staff employees through its Employee Relations department.
