President's Welcome Message


On behalf of the entire college community, I welcome you to Spelman.

Spelman can only be the best it can be when each of us is performing at a high level of excellence. We believe that each employee contributes directly to Spelman's growth and success, and we hope you will take pride in being a member of our team.

This handbook was developed to describe some of our expectations and to outline the policies, programs, and benefits available to eligible employees. You should become familiar with the contents of this handbook as soon as possible, for it will answer many questions about employment with Spelman.

Should you have additional questions, our Office of Human Resources is available to assist you.

We hope that your experience here will be challenging, enjoyable, and rewarding. Again, welcome!



Mary Schmidt Campbell, Ph.D.
