Division of Human Resources, Employee Diversity, and Wellness

Vice President's Welcome

Welcome to the Division of Human Resources, Employee Diversity, and Wellness.  We are a newly created division as of October 1, 2015.  Our goal is to provide the best possible services, programs, and support to Winthrop employees.  The faculty and staff are the University’s #1 asset and our #1 priority.  As we begin to shape the future of this new division, we are excited about the opportunity to listen, learn, and respond by providing excellent customer service to meet the needs of all employees.  Please check back periodically for updates and be on the lookout for announcements about how this new division can better serve potential, new, and current employees.  Feel free to send your comments and suggestions to our office for consideration.

Thank you,

Lisa W. Cowart
Vice President for Human Resources,
