The HR Consultants are available to provide strategic, forward-thinking consultation to help the colleges and departmental leaders and their units with a range of human resource matters. Each University of Guelph college and department or unit has a Consultant assigned to it.

HR Consultants work closely with Human Resource Specialists and are supported by the Consulting Assistants to assist university organizations in the following ways:
- Advising departments on university policies, procedures and best practices.
- Interpreting collective agreements.
- Adapting and implementing G.O.A.L. – University of Guelph’s performance planning, assessment and development program that will support your mission.
