Who We Are
Academic Human Resources (AHR) administers and provides consultation to schools and colleges related to programs, policies and procedures for Instructional and Primary faculty, as well as Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs), Graduate Student Staff Assistants (GSSAs) and Graduate Student Research Assistants (GSRAs). AHR is also responsible for negotiating and administering the Lecturers' Employee Organization (LEO) and the Graduate Employees' Organization (GEO) union contracts.

AHR provides high-level advice and consultation to Deans and administrators within the schools and colleges. Your school or college Dean's Office or administrative/HR representative is your main point of contact for faculty matters, as they are best equipped to handle local issues. View school and college level contacts along with associated AHR representatives and contact information. If you wish to speak with AHR directly, please visit the Academic Human Resources page and scroll down to the Contact Academic Human Resources section.
