A Message From the Chief HR and Diversity Officer

Welcome to the Office of Human Resources at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University!

Human Resources serves as a "strategic" partner and collaborator with the University’s varied stakeholders, ensuring alignment of the function to the business of university administration. These partnerships afford the Office of Human Resources the flexibility to not only anticipate and proactively manage change and HR matters, but also to take proactive leadership in many other areas as appropriate. It is with this view of performance that the entire HR team strives to deliver HR systems, tools and services to Florida A&M University in a manner exemplifying professionalism, service excellence, respect, teamwork and with the utmost regard for diversity and inclusion.
