The Department of Human Resources believes that our employees contribute to The University of Alabama’s overall success. It’s our mission to support faculty and staff in their pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, and service. In order to meet our mission, we assist in efforts to retain exceptional employees and to create an environment where all employees feel appreciated for their contributions and are motivated to continue their hard work.

Our department facilitates awards and recognition programs that acknowledge those committed to their work at UA. Throughout the year we coordinate the Capstone Awards, which give accolades to individual employees, departments, and teams for their exemplary performance, winning spirit, exceptional customer service, and enterprising ways. Annually, our department recognizes staff employees for their years of continuous service at the Service Recognition Celebration.
