What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

Southern Utah University is a great place to work because the people who spend their time here are uncommonly united in purpose, supportive of each other, encouraged to be creative, and allowed to fail. The university is growing; student outcomes are rising; legislative support is increasing. And SUU is situated in a friendly, safe, and vibrant community surrounded by the most inspiring landscapes in America (seven national parks all within a 20-minute to 4-hour drive).

Employee Comment

There is a widespread attitude of "let's try something new/innovative" as well as an attitude of "let's get it done". There is also a lot of school pride, both on campus and in the community.
