The Office of Human Resources seeks to contribute to the University community through the development and administration of effective human resources systems in the areas of employment compensation and benefits, employee relations, personnel record maintenance, and staff training and organizational development. Our objective is that such services have the end result of recruiting, retaining, and enhancing the contribution, personal well-being, and satisfaction of individuals who will advance the teaching, research, and public service mission of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
One of the principal missions of the University of Tennessee is to provide quality educational opportunities for the people of this state. One measure of the quality of an educational experience is the extent to which it enables the recipient to compete and be productive in society and contribute to the quality of life.
The Board of Trustees recognizes that diversity in the educational environment, including an outstanding and diverse student body, faculty, and staff, and an environment conducive to learning, adds value to the educational experience and the degree earned. Interacting with people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives augments the curricular experience and affords every student the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be a productive and contributing citizen of this state and nation, capable of competing in a global society. Thus, diversity is fundamental to a sound twenty-first century education.
The Board affirms the educational value of a diverse and fully inclusive campus community, one that is enriched by persons of different backgrounds, points of view, cultures, socioeconomic status, and other diverse characteristics. The Board expects the University to engage in a variety of initiatives to advance diversity in all aspects of University life.
