The Office of Human Resources (OHR) strives to create an environment where faculty and staff do their best work.  Our university is powered by thousands of dedicated faculty and staff who are inspired and motivated by our mission as a world class research institution positively impacting both the commonwealth and the broader society.  Every UMass Amherst employee is critical to our collective success and each individual brings their own history, values, and perspective which enhances our diverse community.

We provide a range of direct support services to campus employees, such as an on-campus employee assistance program, and operate a comprehensive employee service center.  We also provide strategic support to campus managers, supervisors, and leadership on a wide variety of HR matters, including performance management, organizational development, labor relations, and compliance matters.  Additionally, the Vice Chancellor of HR provides strategic oversight to the Office of Equal Opportunity, which investigates Title IX concerns and other matters of discrimination, harassment, and related retaliation, and the Accessible Workplace Office, which manages ADA accommodations for faculty and staff.

OHR understands the power of relationships.  Whether it is a partnership with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to facilitate dozens of workplace climate conversations, or a partnership with our labor unions to deliver nationally-recognized worker education programs, there is power in collaboration.

Whether you are a current employee, an applicant seeking your first job here, or a 40-year employee looking forward to retirement, OHR is here to support your employment journey.

We welcome you to The Office of Human Resources.
