Program Description

The Department of Human Resources (HR) is responsible for developing and administering all programs and services associated with the employment of faculty and staff and fulfillment of compliance requirements. See attached Organizational Chart and Contact List a detailed listing of resources utilized to support the department.

Personnel Management / Staffing – The Human Resources Department coordinates all of the recruiting activities for the District. Given the staffing resources and budget limitations, HR is relatively effective in coordinating the staffing needs for the district, resulting in hiring quality employees to serve our students.

The recruiting activity for the first half of the current academic year has been steady. To date, 24 vacant positions have been filled. The recruitment of 11faculty positions for Fall 2012 are approved and in process. These recruitments will bring the District in alignment with our full-time faculty obligation requirements.

HR will be looking to the Educational Master Plan to assist departments in assessing the staffing resources required to support the various programs and services offered and will rely on the President’s Leadership Team to prioritize the recruitment of these resources. Our goal will continue to be focused on hiring quality diverse faculty and staff that will provide quality service to our students and the District while minimizing the impact of budget cuts to our employees. The development of a district wide Staffing Plan will assist in the above mentioned process while meeting accreditation requirements.
