Welcome Joyce Coleman
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Joyce Coleman as GSU’s Associate Vice President for Human Resources and Diversity and Title IX Coordinator effective January 16, 2014. Ms. Coleman will be replacing Gail Bradshaw who, after a distinguished service in this position for almost 14 years, is retiring. Gail has generously agreed to extend her GSU employment for
about three months to assist with negotiations on the various collective bargaining agreements that are currently underway.
In her capacity as the university’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Joyce will assume executive leadership responsibility for the entire range of human resources functions and services including strategy and policy development, human resources information system, classification and compensation, employment services, salary and wage administration, staff development and training, benefits enrollment and administration, workers compensation, collective bargaining and employee relations.
As the university’s Title IX Coordinator, she will be responsible for the development, implementation, and enforcement of the university’s policies and processes to ensure compliance with the federal Title IX legislation and associated regulations and directives. Joyce will also serve as the university’s chief collective bargaining officer for non-faculty bargaining units and will serve as the primary administrative liaison and support staff to the Human Resources Committee of the Board of Trustees.
Joyce comes to us with extensive human resources experience both in the public and private sectors. Over the last six years, she served as Joliet Junior College’s Executive Director of Human Resources as well as its Title IX and Ethics Officer. Prior to joining JCC, Joyce served as vice president for human resources for the Chicago Transit Authority, Vice President for Human Resources at Chilton/Disney and as Personnel Director at both Mitchell Titus LLP and Pitney Bowes. She holds a B.A. in psychology from Rutgers University and an M.A. in personnel and counseling from Miami University.
Please join me in congratulating Joyce on her appointment to this key position and in welcoming her to our GSU community. Sometime this spring, we will organize an appropriate gathering to celebrate Gail’s distinguished service with her family and friends.
