Benefits Committee

Human Resources and the administrative units to which that department reports have the responsibility for the structuring of benefits at the University, as well as periodic reevaluation of their appropriateness. The Employee Benefits Committee exists as an advisory committee to provide feedback to Human Resources and the administration from the employees' perspective. Membership of the committee consists of employees and retirees of the university (all appointed by the Provost), as well the Executive Director of Human Resources, the University Treasurer, and the Provost (as ex officio members). When considering benefits issues, Human Resources, the administration and the Employee Benefits Committee operate under, and make decisions based on, the principles and understanding articulated in the Benefits Philosophy Statement.
