The Division of Human Resources is responsible for recruiting, supporting, and retaining a qualified workforce whose primary mission is to ensure the success of USM students.  Our division oversees Employment Services, Benefits, Payroll, Employee and Organization Development, Equity and Compliance, and Labor Relations.

In partnership with University leadership, Human Resources develops and delivers strategic, innovative, and efficient human resource programs and services designed to support the mission and employees of the University of Southern Maine and promote fiscal sustainability.  We succeed in our efforts by focusing on the mission of teaching, research, and public service, by increasing individual and institutional effectiveness, and by supporting student success, active learning, and community engagement.

Our goal is to attract, support, and retain outstanding faculty, staff, and students at USM and to provide leadership and guidance that promotes excellence in organizational and individual performance.
