Who We Are

Human Resources, operating within the portfolio of the Vice-President of Finance and Services, comprises of several units including: Academic Relations, HR Services, Total Rewards, Talent Management, Employee & Labour Relations, and HR Business Support.

Our Vision

We partner with University leaders to support the "Eyes High" vision.

"Eyes High" is the University of Calgary's bold and ambitious vision to become one of Canada's top five research universities, grounded in innovative learning and teaching and fully integrated with the community of Calgary, by the university's 50th anniversary in 2016.

Our Mission

By creating and delivering exemplary human resources services, processes, and outcomes, we contribute to and share in the university's mission and goals to:

  • Sharpen focus on research and scholarship;
  • Enrich the quality and breadth of learning;
  • Fully integrate the university with the community.

Our Values

The strategy also articulates eight core values shared by the university community: curiosity; support; collaboration; communication; sustainability; globalization; balance; and excellence.

HR Service Delivery Model

An HR Partner and HR Advisor(s) have been assigned to each Faculty and Unit to provide strategic HR Services and are available to answer your specific questions or direct you appropriately regarding your employment, special leaves, benefits or payroll and other HR related inquiries. In addition, they oversee the academic career processes related to new hires and provide you with assistance for promotion, tenure, and annual assessments. Your HR Partner and HR Advisor are often physically located in your Faculty/Unit.

People are what make this university great!

Our people help shape the lives and intellects of our future community leaders.
