The UW has several different categories of employees including academic personnel (faculty, librarians, post-doctoral associates, senior fellows, visiting scientists, etc), staff (classified, professional, hourly, temporary), academic student employees (ASE,GSA), students (undergrads and graduate), and volunteers. Foreign nationals on a visa can fall under any of the categories. Academic HR is your resource for academic personnel. Information on non-academic personnel can be found through UW Staff Human Resources. The Managers tab will have most of the information you need to manage non-academic personnel. Additional information pertaining to international faculty, staff and visitors can be found through ISO. You should note that the University does not sponsor visas for staff employees.

Additional information on UW Human Resources can be found below.

  • Hiring
    • Each UW department or organization has a 'service team' assigned to it that provides consulting and employment services. The teams are comprised of a Human Resources Consultant (HRC) and an Employment Specialist (ES). The ES coordinates all recruitment through UWHIRES. The HRC assists with interpretation and application of all UW employment policies and procedures, including those associated with ASEs.
    • UWHIRES is the system used to track all staff requisitions. Each Manager will have a workbench within UWHires that is used to track the status of all requisitions.
