Vanderbilt University is a place where everyone can reach their full potential. Our priorities are guided by our collegial and inclusive culture, our collaborative approach to discovery, and our mission to provide an empowering education that changes lives for the better.

Human Resources makes this mission possible—through our services, innovation and commitment to fostering a diverse and highly talented community of colleagues.

We are dedicated to ensuring that our employees can:

  • Benefit from our “One Vanderbilt” approach, as part of a wide-ranging yet wholly united community comprised of ten distinct schools and colleges, specialized divisions and departments;
  • Experience inclusive programming, shared governance and a work culture that enables employees to be their best and most authentic selves, while also providing opportunities for learning and growth;
  • Feel empowered and equipped to engage and make a difference, regardless of their title or position, through personal development, teamwork and meaningful relationships within their team and across our university.
