  • promoting the use of standardized and proactive human resources processes;
  • nurturing human resources through the effective use of continuous improvement principles;
  • establishing collaborative partnerships with Schools/Colleges and Divisions; and
  • coordinating campus compliance with affirmative action and equal opportunity requirements, referred to as AA/EEO compliance.
