About Us
The mission of the School's human resources (HR) office is to provide counsel and guidance and to lead initiatives on behalf of the School. We serve as an adviser to School personnel on HR policies, procedures and systems including Appointments, Promotions and Tenure (APT); recruitment and hiring; performance management; employee relations; as well as many other areas. We also serve as the liaison between the School and various offices around campus (Provost’s Office, Office of Human Resources, Equal Opportunity Office, Office of University Counsel, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, as well as other UNC-Chapel Hill offices) on personnel issues.
