Letter from Shana Sechrist,

Associate Vice President of Human Resources


Welcome to the division of Finance and Administration at Portland State University!

Our team supports the University community in creating an engaging, fulfilling work environment that enables employees to contribute at the highest level to support the mission of the university.

On a day-to-day basis, we serve the PSU community in the areas of employee recruitment and retention, new employee onboarding, employee learning and development, payroll, compensation and benefits –with a focus on employee’s wellness, health and safety—and employee relations. We strive to implement best practices in these areas, while minimizing complexities for our stakeholders.

We want to continually improve our service to the campus community and our employees. We appreciate your partnership and welcome your feedback about the best ways we can support you.
