Human Resource is a whole consisting of inter-related; inter dependent and interacting physiological, psychological, sociological and ethical components.  
In line with its features, human resource is heterogeneous in nature. Accordingly: -
•    It consists of a large number of individuals each having a unique personality, different needs, attitudes and values,
•    Each has his own physical and psychological traits,
•    Most of the problems of an organization are people related problems which arise from the mistaken belief that people are alike and are they can be treated identically.
Therefore; in-order to make effective use of its human resource, an organization must recognize and pay attention to difference between individuals so that each person can maximize his/her potential.
Taking the above facts into consideration, Human Resource Management Directorate has been revised its existing structure and reengineered the new structure, accountable to the Vice President for Administration and Student Services.
