Human Resources


Are you a faculty member or employee looking for HR forms and information? All of our internal employee resources have moved to Collaborate.

Our Mission

Our faculty and staff embody the strength of our university’s commitment to prepare students for lifelong learning with a solid liberal arts foundation. The Human Resources office supports the Western's mission by providing the campus community with professional consulting, support and service in all employment-related matters. 

Our Values

Communication: We strive to listen first, then to be clear, practical, logical and concise in our communication. We believe proactive communication fosters trust and collegial working relationships. 

Employee Relations: We work to be the first resource for employee work-life issues. We believe in two-way communication to solve workplace problems fairly, early on and at the lowest level that is practical in the institutional structure. We support a culture that celebrates employee success.

Programs and Services: We aim to provide quality services and programs in the most effective form, with easily accessible information to both anticipate and meet the needs of our employees.

Consulting: We study to stay well informed on topics affecting employees and the administration of human resources in order to provide innovative ideas for services, policies and strategies.
