Human Resources

Welcome to Human Resources

Welcome to Nicholls State University’s Office of Human Resources (H.R.). We are responsible for a variety of functions and services relating to Personnel/Human Resources.

H.R. is the central office for maintaining the official personnel records for all faculty and staff of the University.

Other responsibilities of this office include the processing of all employment appointments; advising faculty and staff regarding staffing and employee policies and procedures, compensation, benefits, and state and federal rules and regulations concerning employment; employee relations and staff development including on-site workshops and training, new employee orientation; disseminate information about employee benefits; coordinate worker’s compensation claims. Our office also is responsible for the Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity programs for the University.

Having established myself as a trusted advocate and liaison for every employee, I work daily to develop a culture that exemplifies Human Resources as a true resource for employees and students by being visible, approachable, and engaged in the well-being and betterment of all employees and the University as a whole.

Steven H. Kenney, Jr.

UL System policies regarding the prohibition of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation against individuals based upon any protected status, including their retirement status or age have undergone many revisions.  All efforts have been made to remove all documents from the Nicholls State University website that contain information that is misleading or in conflict with its policies regarding harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.  This includes a removal of all references to subjecting individuals to adverse actions for false complaints of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation which may have an unduly chilling effect on an individual who has been subjected to such action.  Click here  if you believe that you have identified information on the Nicholls State University website that is out of compliance with UL SYSTEM policies.
