HR Operations 12/11/20-1/11/21

As communicated in a number of recent campus updates, we will maximize teleworking and work to limit on-campus activity to the extent possible, to support an extended period of campus energy and cost savings, from 5:00 p.m. Friday, December 11 through January 11, 2021.  To support these efforts, the Office of Human Resources will operate primarily virtually and in-person by appointment only during this period of reduced operations.  We will resume regular on-campus business hours on January 12.

Throughout the period of reduced operations, all Human Resources programs and support will be fully functioning and all members of the Human Resources team will be available.  We will readily schedule in-person appointments as necessary and we will proactively make appointments with any new hires who are scheduled to begin their employment prior to January 12.

You can reach the Office of Human Resources at 828-262-3187 or email  You may also contact individual members of the Human Resources team directly.  You can find our staff directory and contact information on the Human Resources website here.
