From Human Resources
I’d like to personally welcome you to James Madison University. It’s an exciting time for us as we look to the future and continue to grow, adapt, and respond to the needs and dreams of our employees, our community, our students and the many partners we have around the country and the world!
James Madison University provides many opportunities for personal and professional growth, and the Human Resources office is here to help you navigate through your employment and assist however we are able.
This handbook is one way for us to provide information that is relevant to your employment with JMU. You can also find many helpful resources on our web page. Our office is located at 752 Ott Street in the Wine-Price Building, and we are glad to serve you there in person as well. The Human Resources direct phone number is 540-568-6165.
JMU is recognized nationally for many things: academic quality, teaching excellence, student retention, graduation rates, community engagement, environmental and social responsibility, athletics and campus beauty and hospitality. Recognition like this happens, in large part, because of the dedicated people who work here… people like you.
Again, welcome to James Madison University.
Our mission: Human Resources is dedicated to customer service, a positive approach to change and the pursuit of excellence that promotes university and individual success.
