Our Mission

To provide comprehensive human resource management programs in support of the mission of excellence in teaching and scholarly work of Washburn University. 

Human Resources staff members are strongly committed to facilitating the employment and development of University employees through recruitment, orientation, salary administration, and training.  We are also strongly dedicated to the attraction and retention of all employees through the administration and enhancement of the University’s exceptional benefit programs.

Human Resources staff members strive to interact positively with all University's constituents, regardless of their affiliation with Washburn.  The University community should feel appropriately informed and have a better understanding of the human resource programs of the University in any interaction.
