Human Resources

The Office of Human Resources provides Washington & Jefferson College employees with support, guidance and useful information about employment opportunities, employee benefits and services, wellness plans and more.

W&J employees should see the Human Resources Wiki for information about insurance and benefits, campus policies and procedures including Title IX information, new employee orientation materials, general wellness information, and various forms. The W&J Employee Handbook also is available on the Human Resources Wiki.
