Susan A. Carkeek is the Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for the University of Virginia. As such she oversees all human resource functions for the academic division of the University, as well as having oversight responsibility for the University of Virginia’s College at Wise and the health plan and other benefits for the University's Medical Center. The Vice President also has responsibility for non-academic aspects of the faculty personnel system.

In an era when the competition for top talent amongst peer institutions is more spirited than ever, University Human Resources support the academic mission of the University by creating a work environment that attracts, develops, and retains an outstanding and diverse workforce. UHR strives to put the “human” back in Human Resources, through policies and programs that encourage continuous learning and motivate employees toward success.

The University of Virginia’s student experience is renowned, and University Human Resources strives to create a workplace and employee experience with an equal reputation. U.Va. has demonstrated its commitment to its staff with a state-of-the-art human resources plan that offers enhanced career development, innovative performance management, and competitive, market-based compensation. The University Staff HR Plan confirms the University as a wonderful place to work if you want more than just a job: it’s a place to build a career, a place to make a difference.

Just as the undergraduates at U.Va. will look back at their time here as one of learning, growth, change, and exploration, so should our staff. When one reflects on a career at the University, it will stand out, as U.Va. does, for its uncommon excellence.
