From the President

This is an exciting time for the University and USA Health, and I’m pleased to be working alongside you to elevate our region through teaching, research, service and healthcare.

The Staff Employee Handbook provides information, policies and requirements related to employment, employee benefits, regulatory guidelines, attendance, leave, workplace expectations, disciplinary guidelines, position classification, and training and development.

The Staff Employee Handbook, Faculty Handbook and the USA Student Handbook, The Lowdown, are an integral part of our success in charting a course for the University of South Alabama becoming the Flagship of the Gulf Coast.

These handbooks, along with our Policy Library and Community Values and Code of Conduct, collectively support USA's mission, core values and vision. Staff employees and supervisors alike should routinely reference the Staff Employee Handbook as the official, primary source of guidance.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your supervisor or a Human Resources representative.

With our community working together, The University of South Alabama will be the leading academic institution and healthcare provider throughout our region. Thank you for doing your part in our success.
