Welcome to Western’s Human Resources.  We have designed the following web pages with the goal of connecting you with the many benefits and services available to University employees, and providing a place where you can find policies, guidelines, and resources related to your employment type and needs.

We trust that you will find our site informational, useful and easy to navigate.  The Human Resources Department supports Western’s mission to serve the people of the state of Washington, the nation and the world by bringing together individuals of diverse background and perspectives in an inclusive, student-centered university that develops the potential of learners and the well-being of communities.

Western’s faculty and staff are one of our greatest resources, and are committed to support a vibrant learning environment for our students.  From recruitment to retirement and everything in between, we strive to impact the personal and professional lives of faculty and staff in meaningful and significant ways.  We believe that healthy and happy employees are productive employees, and are better able to carry out the University’s mission.  Western employees care and come from all walks of life, but we work for the common goal of making Western’s workforce the best in its class, where all employees are treated with equity and dignity.

Your comments and feedback about our website are welcomed and would provide valuable insight to help us improve our services.  If you have an idea or a comment, please send your suggestions to me at Chyerl.Wolfe-Lee@wwu.edu.

Thank you for visiting our site and come back often!
