What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

Biola University is a great place to work because: 1) Our institutional mission is clear and compelling, built on 111 years of transformational education that contributes to the good of the world. 2) Our faculty and staff are deeply committed to our mission, to caring for our students and for working with each other shoulder-to-shoulder with humility and respect. 3) Our vision for the future is unified in the midst of our diversity, centered around doing what is best for our students and focused on our best contribution to education, scholarship and service as a faith-based community empowered by God's truth and grace.

Employee Comment

What is absolutely clear is that Biola's leadership (from president to deans, etc.) is always striving to do better, to correct any past shortcomings (even ones that were before their time), to support and love faculty, staff, and students.
