  • Providing a comprehensive insurance and benefits program for all employees.
  • Continuously investigating new benefit offerings that are responsive to the needs of employees.
  • Refining and implementing a performance development plan that recognizes the contributions of non-faculty employees and encourages personal and professional growth.
  • Implementing a personal and professional development strategy that equips our employees with relevant knowledge and skills to continue to provide high quality services.
  • Working in collaboration with the University administration to implement a compensation strategy that positively impacts performance while addressing external competitiveness and internal equity.
  • Developing and implementing a staff classification system that represents relevant position responsibilities and qualifications.
