The Department of Human Resources
Welcome to Human Resources!


KU is a member of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) and most benefits are standard across the 14 universities that make up the system.

Employee benefits and eligibility are determined based upon employment status (full time/ part time, etc.) and the employee group that represents your job.  Employee groups and detailed information are described on the PASSHE HR website.   If you are unsure of your employee group please Ask HR.

  • New Employees: As a new employee you will have decisions to make regarding benefits and payroll information.  This new employee link  focuses on providing you with the information you need as you join the KU community.
  • Current Employees: As an important member of the KU family additional information regarding  all of your benefits, including wellness initiatives and tuition waiver can be found on this page.
