About Us

The HR Information System (HRIS) at the University is the primary repository of all personnel data associated with an employee’s appointment and income. Authorized access to the system is based on the roles and responsibilities of the staff members who use the system.

The team mandate is to provide ongoing support and communications to HRIS users about system procedures, changes, upcoming events, reference documentation, and HRIS training. The team encourages users to provide comments and suggestions as it pertains to HRIS functionality and usability by completing the HRIS survey.
