Message from Susan Basso, Senior Vice President, Talent, Culture & Human Resources

Welcome to the Office of Human Resources website!

The Ohio State University is an extraordinary place where dedicated faculty and staff can contribute their best work every day to deliver successful outcomes.  The diversity and talent each individual brings to their work at the university and Wexner Medical Center are key to teaching students, caring for patients and delivering breakthrough research.

I invite you to explore the breadth of information and resources available as you consider the opportunities that make a career at Ohio State a rewarding experience.

Human Resource professionals, programs and services are available for achieving talent solutions grounded in facts, collaborative partnerships and a common vision to advance the mission and vision of Ohio State. We also take tremendous pride in a competitive total rewards package, inclusive of high quality benefits, for faculty and staff.

The strategic role of Human Resources at Ohio State is one we are committed to as we strive for excellence in delivering talent and culture that drives inspiration, student success and global solutions.
