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.Joyce A.

Problem Solve and Process Improvement
Every day we are presented with countless choices that involve doing the right thing; however, the right thing to do isn't always the easiest thing to do. A moral dilemma is a struggle in which one must choose between two or more actions, neither of which has a universal, definitive consensus on whether it is 'right' or 'wrong', and there are likely valid arguments for either side. An issue that can be considered a moral dilemma is that of euthanasia. In contemporary society, a frequent topic for moral discussion is euthanasia, which is the act of painlessly ending the life of a person for reasons of mercy. Typically for the terminally ill or those in a position of long-term suffering, it is legal in some countries for medical doctors to perform euthanasia at the request of the patient. On the one hand, there is virtue in granting someone the mercy of a life ended with dignity, and on the other, many persons argue that good intentions aside, euthanasia is still fundamentally the act of ending a life, and is therefore murder, which is generally agreed to be both a crime and morally wrong- thus, the moral dilemma. .
