UHR is a Vice Presidential area comprised of several departments and groups who manage workplace processes, plans and programs for approximately 15,000 employees.

We work closely with HR partners in seven schools and 20+ academic and administrative areas, who support employees and their managers with local program oversight and individual guidance.
