The Tools for Success

UCR prides itself on its support system and the career opportunities we offer our employees. Our Human Resources Department helps our staff members with everything from benefits to education and development to policies and procedures.

Our staff members have access to campus recreational activities and can join our Student Recreation Center, an 80,000-square-foot, state-of-the art facility that offers basketball, weight training, racquetball courts and more.

They can also take advantage of the services offered at the Schools First Credit Union gain housing and rental assistance, and peruse our campus libraries.

These are only a sample of the many resources available to our outstanding staff members. We give our employees the tools they need to make a difference and enjoy their campus experiences and give back to the campus community.
