HR Partners

To enhance the quality and effectiveness of University Human Resources’ initiatives, an HR Partner role for each university unit has been established. The HR Partner functions as the unit’s primary representative and liaison to University Human Resources on strategic HR matters. HR Partners will provide feedback on current and proposed institutional HR programs, initiatives, communications, and process strategies that impact their respective divisions.

The critical components of the HR Partner role are as follows:

  • To represent the organization in the provision of interactive input and feedback to UHR regarding current and proposed new or modified institutional HR programs and initiatives, communications, and process strategies.
  • To serve as the organization’s principal partner or liaison with UHR in the successful implementation, communication, establishment, and promotion of new or enhanced HR programs, processes, and initiatives.
  • To serve as a conduit for communication between UHR and the organization conveying accurate, consistent, and timely information to staff and faculty within each constituent operating unit.
  • To provide a level of strategic coordination regarding HR transactions that are appropriate to the specific organization, and to provide leadership or initiate collaboration with UHR in the remediation of situational problems and non-compliant or out-of-guidelines activities.
  • To network with other HR Partners and UHR subject matter experts to discuss and benchmark HR practices across the institution, and to gain institutional insight into HR compliance issues and associated areas of risk.

Specific duties and responsibilities of an HR Partner may be delegated per the staffing structure and operational requirements of the organization. However, the primary point of strategic liaison and collaboration between the organization and UHR shall remain the designated HR Partner.
