What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

Working closely with the diverse, talented professionals throughout the faculty, staff; interaction with the students on various projects, in the classroom and at college/university gatherings. This recent, and continuing, global pandemic clearly challenged everyone and every organization. Our university's leadership responded quickly and logically to outline a series of procedures, policies and processes to ensure everyone's safety, which has been and continues to be, a major part of our professional culture. I particularly appreciate the genuine collegiality evident in all levels of our organization.
