In an effort to support work-life balance, OSU offers faculty candidates the opportunity to meet with Christina Schaaf, the Work-Life Coordinator, to discuss their unique concerns. Christina is available to answer questions about the availability of university and community resources, such as employment, dependent care, housing, or other issues related to the candidates’ needs, partners and families.
OSU is committed to recruiting talented employees and understands that accepting employment often involves a complex set of decisions about work and family, including employment for the accompanying partner or spouse. For the partners or spouses of newly hired employees, the Work-Life Coordinator can suggest resources to enhance their search for employment inside and outside the OSU community. Services include the following:
Individuals are also encouraged to utilize the Greater Oregon Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (GO HERC) website, a free job board to explore employment at other institutions of higher education within the greater Oregon and southern Washington region.
The Work-Life Coordinator is available to meet with individuals and department administrators about their work-life needs, such as elder care, child care, time management, and work-life balance. Christina is also available to present to campus groups.
