Steve Sosland, TTUHSC Chief People Officer


My key initiatives are to create a sustainable values-based culture; elevate our HR functions on all campuses to fully support the university's mission; and design and implement development programs for faculty, staff, and administrators throughout TTUHSC. My goals for TTUHSC are to accomplish these initiatives and serve as a role model and champion for our values-based culture and organization.


Values are the deeply-held beliefs and principles that drive our behaviors - our daily actions. Culture is the collection of our behaviors as we integrate as a team.

Both values and culture are an integral part of TTUHSC.

TTUHSC HR is dedicated to upholding the university's mission and developing our leaders. To this end, Chief People Officer Steve Sosland has created five process improvement teams. These teams consist of 54 team members from across our schools, departments, campuses and Correctional Managed Health Care (CMHC) units.

Thoughts and Readings

Ann Rhoades and Gayle Watson of People Ink are facilitating our Values Summit. While serving as the Chief People Officer of Southwest Airlines, Ann led their effort to create a sustainable values-based culture there. I highly encourage everyone to read Ann's book Built on Values.
