Strategic Principles

HR is committed to fostering a university-wide human resources community of practice. Through collaboration and connection, we work to strengthen HR functions and practices within this community as we all support university leadership and institutional priorities. We will build and enhance connections throughout the network of Human Resources professionals and practitioners on campus and leverage relationships among this community and campus constituents.

Our daily work is guided by the following strategic principles:

  1. Continuously improve, develop, and provide support and training for HR practices, systems and processes to maximize effectiveness and efficiencies and deliver thoughtful strategic outcomes that support a diverse and inclusive university and contribute to university success.
  2. Lead engagement of the campus workforce to enhance the employee experience and foster an inclusive environment connecting members of the campus community to institutional priorities and contributing to University success.
  3. Engage HR professionals and practitioners to enhance HR knowledge, skills, and abilities. Leverage the strength of the full HR community in delivering campus HR services with shared core values.
  4. Reinforce and augment HR’s partnership with UO leadership in the implementation of strategic initiatives.
