Human Capital Development

Syracuse University is passionate about the development of human capital – our people – to its highest potential. This is essential to providing the optimal learning, research, and work environment for students, faculty, staff and other stakeholders. The development of human capital is intimately bound to the University's commitment to educate people in the world, for the world, and to its vision of Scholarship in Action. For the University to attain its institutional and public goals, we must recruit, retain, and support a diverse and dynamic workforce on campus and in all our communities, both local and global.

Led by Senior Vice President Kal Alston, the Office of Human Capital Development provides the organizational bridge to reach across institutional boundaries, disciplinary silos and departmental cultures to support and advance the University's values of opportunity, access, and inclusion. HCD encompasses the offices of Human Resources; Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services; Academic Human Resources; and the Early Education and Child Care Center. Through Alston, it also has links to SU ADVANCE, an initiative sponsored by the National Science Foundation to increase the representation of women in academic science and engineering careers; Imagining AmericaSay Yes to Education; and other cross-campus and interdisciplinary programs.
