What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

The people and the mission. I love my colleagues and administrators in my department/college. My students are a delight to work with. We have a shared sense of mission for what we do and a creative, grounded approach to strategic planning for the future. At this time, I genuinely do not want to work anywhere else in academia.
