What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

Slippery Rock University's people-centric culture is at the core of why this is a great place to work. People at every level come to work and stay at SRU because they believe in our mission and are empowered to make a difference. In fact, a consistent narrative among employees is that they came to SRU with the intent to stay for a short time and ended up "staying a lifetime." Certainly providing good wages and benefits add to the institution's attractiveness, but its real value, is how people are respected and engaged in the life of the University.

Employee Comment

The institution has a collaborative, supportive spirit and work culture that welcomed and mentored me […] throughout my career here.
