Our Office

Mission Statement

University Human Resources exists to support the larger mission of the university in teaching, research and community engagement. We are committed to developing and maintaining a workplace that supports our diverse body of faculty and staff and that upholds each of the university’s values. Collectively we serve as advocates for the GW community to consistently provide discreet, valuable, and personalized service that is timely and responsive

For many of our employees, our Faculty & Staff Service Center (FSSC), which opened July 2010 and is managed by our HR Operations team, provides a one-stop-shopping for human resources, benefits, parking, payroll and more. Along with our FSSC Associates, GW employees are served by our Client Partners group. Made up of a skilled team of HR Client Partners embedded in the schools and divisions, this group provides HR service customized to the individual needs of our clients.

Supporting our FSSC staff and HR Client Partners are a number of departments working behind the scenes to provide subject matter expertise.

Staff Recruitment works with both the applicants and the hiring managers to develop processes that ensure the most qualified candidates receive highest consideration for the positions they apply for. Responsibilities of the department include position postings, closures, and maintenance, ad placements, candidate screenings, People Admin end user support, preparation of offer letters, orientation registration, and background checks.

Total Rewards includes compensation, benefit strategy and policy. Compensation consulting provides market-based job evaluations and salary administration.

The EEO & HR Policy Compliance Office provides consultative services to assist staff with situations that involve allegations of unfair treatment, sexual harassment, discrimination, affirmative action, as well as disability and religious accommodations.

Workplace Learning & Development is a professional development resource to GW staff in the schools and divisions. WLD’s vision is to help GW be recognized as an employer of choice who attracts and retains the right talent because it is known for helping people reach their full potential.

Colonial Community provides a range of activities and resources to promote work-life balance, health & wellness, and employee recognition, with the goal of building a sense of community among faculty and staff. Take advantage of the many programs and resources we offer to you as a GW faculty or staff member.

The HR Information Systems department is responsible for collecting, maintaining and reporting employee data. They also manage the employment eligibility process (I-9), maintain the GW online telephone directory, oversee the employee records termination process, and create affiliate NetID accounts.
