What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

At Southern New Hampshire University, we are proud of our employee benefits program, but what sets us apart is our student-focused culture. Our passion for learner success is truly unlike any other in higher education. We work hard every day, challenging the status quo to create pathways that best support learners needs, and I think everyone who works here at SNHU feels we are helping to make the world a better and more just place, one learner at a time. In the end, we are in the business of hope. That's a pretty great mission.

Employee Comment

They care about us as people rather than worker drones, and they care about our students too. I'm empowered to make decisions and requests that challenge the status quo in response to the needs of my students, and my feedback is valued and appreciated--and it is often successful.
