The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is a world-class, research intensive, regional University with a diverse portfolio of expertise and a particular focus on fostering healthy lives, vibrant communities and global connections. UNCG is a leading institution within the 17-campus University of North Carolina System. Recognized for its programs in the Music, Theater and Dance; Nursing; Business; Education; Life and Physical Sciences; and Health and Human Sciences, UNCG continues to grow its enrollment and enjoys the most diverse student populations of all the UNC system universities. With more than 19,000 students, UNCG has a significant and positive impact in North Carolina and the Greensboro/Triad area in particular. UNCG is nationally recognized for its distance learning initiative and serves many rural areas of North Carolina with its highly rated online educational programs. Established in 1892, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro was founded as the first public university in North Carolina for women. In 1963 the school became co-educational, but the legacy of providing both opportunity and excellence continues today.


The Office of Human Resources is in the process of a strategic reorganization that will create a HR strategy, processes and culture to support talent management (recruitment, retention, development, succession), engagement, health and productivity of faculty and staff. This realignment will allow HR to collaborate with other leaders in operational and strategic decisions impacting outcomes, as well as, manage risk through compliance with legal, financial and/or organization requirement and through the application of best practice. Adding a deputy CHRO to the organization will allow the Associate Vice Chancellor of Human Resources to focus on moving forward the strategic goals for university and the HR goals of the HR organization while the deputy focuses on day-to-day administration.


The Office of Human Resources is currently seeking motivated and qualified candidates to consider for the Deputy CHRO position.  The Deputy Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) will provide strategic leadership and direction for University human resource related business operations, processes and HRIS and related systems. The Deputy CHRO will have responsibility for HR operations in the absence of the Associate Vice Chancellor. The Deputy CHRO will be responsible for developing, implementing, and communicating operating policies and procedures as appropriate to the specific focus of the role, and will lead and/or participate in the establishment of the various programs and initiatives. The position will supervise and provide direction to a team of managers and individual contributors in the primary areas of responsibility, to include HR Operations, HRIS, Compensation, Talent Acquisition and Benefits and Retirement. Additionally, the Deputy CHRO works closely with Associate Vice Chancellor to set strategies, design new initiatives, benchmark best practices, create policies, establish success metrics and monitor results to ensure HR is effectively aligned with the university’s needs.


The Deputy CHRO has the authority to act on the behalf of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources on any HR related matter to all management levels within and outside campus, and to act as the department head in the absence of the AVC for HR. The Deputy has approval/signature authority to provide back-up and support to the department/campus in the absence of the AVC for HR. In addition, the Deputy CHRO has the authority to implement the necessary procedures, systems, campus communications, internal and external consultation, and education materials to ensure efficient practices and compliance.
