Mission Statement

campus arial shotThe mission of the Human Resources Department is directly supportive of the mission of the university.  To paraphrase slightly, "NMU will become the employer of choice in the Midwest for individuals seeking a quality university employer with individualized attention in a high-tech learning environment."  Our vision for the future won't compromise the university elements of High Touch, High Tech, and High Quality. 

In executing the mission and balancing the vision elements, Human Resources has a particular obligation to remain true to the university's roadmap: 

  • We continue to innovate our processes and approaches for improved efficiency and effectiveness
  • The human systems we support are intended to contribute to a meaningful work life for each employee
  • We are committed to leveraging our campus attributes, most particularly the many talents of our employees
  • As a key regional employer, our community engagement and partnership activities contribute to a healthy economic base for stability and growth. 

The principles and values our team members apply to our work emphasize partnership, continuous improvement, accuracy, and customer service. Every job here has a purpose, and each individual has worth.  Our goal is to optimize the match between those two things, such that jobs are efficiently accomplished and individuals feel able to fully contribute.
