Human Resources

The Department of Human Resources is responsible for Sweet Briar College’s employee recruitment, benefits administration, payroll processing, maintenance of personnel records, performance appraisal management, employee development and training, safety, and the management of employee relations. The department is led by the Director of Human Resources. We are committed to meeting the needs of our faculty and staff.

The department partners with institutional leaders to attract and retain talented faculty and staff to Sweet Briar College. Human Resources continues to focus on contributing toward a welcoming, affirming, and empowering culture of respect and inclusion.

Human Resources strives to serve as a consultant, partner, and advisor to all departments on a wide range of compliance and non-compliance human resources-related issues; facilitate professional development of employees; and promote effective employee communication throughout the Sweet Briar College community.
