The Department of Human Resources serves the ECU community through innovation and action in the development and management of the University’s human resources. The staff works to support the mission of the University with an overarching commitment to outstanding customer service and accountability. The department consists of six units that oversee the entire human resources function to include policy administration, recruitment and selection, onboarding, benefits administration, employee relations, career development and training, classification and compensation, information systems, and data reporting. Personnel matters are governed by state statutes, UNC Policy Manual, and The Code of the University of North Carolina, and most processes and actions are prescribed by these governing documents. Human Resources plays a critical role in ensuring ECU is accountable and compliant in terms of Federal, State, and UNC System human resources practices.
