The vision of the UW Oshkosh Office of Human Resources is to be the most trusted and credible resource in the University for assistance with human resources matters. We will function as: 
    • A valued internal consultant and leader ensuring support for practices and standards to engage employees and result in effective use of human, financial, technical, and physical resources;
    • Professionals that place a high value on collaborative relationships while recognizing the importance of individual contributions; and
    • Strategic partners who are responsive to the diverse needs of all university employees.


The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Human Resources Department is a creative and collaborative resource that successfully partners with campus constituents to provide strategic solutions to human resource matters. The Office of Human Resources has service as its main goal and works to apply continuous improvement principles, consistent with the directives contained in the University’s Strategic Plan.
