Offer Letter Samples

This site provides guidelines and sample letters of offer and hire for employment with the university. The hiring of a new university employee is a critically important event, which calls for excellence, professionalism, clarity, and appropriateness of commitment in the communication of offer/hire.

The sample letters on this site set those standards and should be used for any university offers of employment (excluding faculty and Medical Center positions). Alternative letters may be used, but only if they have been carefully evaluated for adherence to these standards and approved by the Office of Human Resources Organization & Human Resource Consulting.
