About Human Resources

Clayton State University is a place where dreams are made real, not only for our students, but for our employees as well.

The University offers employees professional opportunities and personal development in a diverse, inclusive environment. The campus is situated just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta on 214 beautiful acres, making access to the metropolitan area a breeze.

We’ve been named a Top Workplace in Atlanta by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution for six consecutive years. And we also were named one of 79 higher education institutions across the nation in The Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of 2017 Great Colleges to Work For. So, it’s easy to see why Clayton State is a great career choice.


The Department of Human Resources serves as a partner in support of the university’s mission to provide leadership in the areas of teaching, research, and public service. The Department of Human Resources takes a leadership role in providing services that support the concept that our employees are our most valuable resource and will be treated as such.


Our mission is to establish an optimal work environment to facilitate the professional and personal growth of our faculty and staff. We will work to sustain high productivity, continuous improvement, organizational renewal, and exceptional customer service.

Additionally, the Human Resources staff will work with university administrators and employees to ensure compliance with all Federal, State, and local laws pertaining to personnel and affirmative action.
