U Employees Conquer a Mountain of Debt

With the help of free financial counselors, over $1.6 million in personal debt has been paid off by University employees since 2014. The University offers free financial counseling to employees through LSS Financial Counseling, a Minnesota-based nonprofit organization. A counselor helps to create a debt management plan that consolidates payments so debt is paid off faster. Employees and their families can schedule up to six counseling sessions a year for free to talk about paying off debt, budgeting, paying off student loans, buying a home, and reviewing credit reports. To make an appointment, call 800-528-2926 or visit the financial counseling page to learn more about this benefit.

Diversity on Campus

The University is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming campus. Learn more about diversity at the U. See the University's equal opportunity statement from President Eric Kaler.

HR Policies

All policies can be found in the University Policy Library. Look for the Human Resource Policy page for policies related specifically to Human Resources. Forms from across the University are available on this site as well.
