The Ufirst Project


Where We're Going

The UVA Human Resources transition will occur in phases over several months and is designed to minimize disruption to current operations and allow HR professionals, as well as the faculty, staff, and team members they support, to acclimate to these changes.

This transition begins the fall of 2017 and will progress gradually until people, processes, and work are in place to support the new organization.

Workday is coming in January 2019!
