Human Resources

Welcome to the Office of Human Resources at Willamette University!

Willamette University enjoys all the benefits of the Pacific Northwest: forests, rivers, mountains and coastline nearby; a commitment to the environment; a relaxed, creative and civic-minded culture; and vibrant arts and music scenes. We are located in Salem, Oregon’s capital. The city of 152,000 is the epicenter of state government, law and business — and our campus is right across the street from the Capitol Building. We are an independent, privately supported college.

We hope you will find the information and resources you need about Willamette University's employment, benefits, and programs helpful. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
