ABOUT HR NOW

The field of HR and how we think about our workforce and workplace has been changing for quite some time, and it’s raised the bar for meeting more complex and demanding workforce needs. Human Resources is involved in all aspects of the employment experience — from onboarding to offboarding and everything in between. Therefore, like organizations across the country, Stony Brook University HR is evolving to meet your changing needs as we rise up to challenges posed by today’s, and tomorrow’s, work environment.

→ Creating a new approach to how we deliver HR support to meet the campus’ evolving HR needs across West Campus and the Health Science Schools

Encompassing new and emerging strategic services and programs in Central HR

→ Providing comprehensive, expert HR leadership across the University through efficient and expedient processes

→ Investing in our people to build, prepare and lead the workforce of the future
