Our employees are one of our institution’s greatest strengths and assets. For the University to achieve its goals and honor its commitment to our people, we must invest in our employees. In practice, this means focusing on retention and recruitment, as without talented and dedicated people, we will not be able to fulfill our mission and realize our full potential. Together, the University community must foster a culture focused on learning and growth, including career mobility.
