Human Resources Advisory Board

HR_Primary HZ_1.png

The Human Resources Advisory Board (HRAB) reviews and makes recommendations concerning policies, programs, and initiatives designed to support and promote the intellectual and professional development of the university's workforce. The Board considers such matters as the training and support provided to staff and faculty serving in administrative roles; orientation and support for new members of the workforce; and the promotion of a healthy community within and between departments. The Board also reviews and makes recommendations concerning existing and proposed hiring and recruitment procedures and policies and compensation and benefits policies and programs for University faculty and staff. With regard to faculty benefits and awards, the Human Resources Advisory Board coordinates with, and does not duplicate, the work of the CFED (Committee on Faculty Equity and Diversity).
