What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

At the University of North Alabama, we understand that great work environments revolve around great people. We hire with care to ensure alignment with our institutional identity and aspirations. Retention is equally important. We want our employees to know they are valued, and we celebrate their accomplishments early and often. We never take good morale for granted and work closely with faculty and staff leaders to process issues and ensure campus harmony.

Employee Comment

The institution is relatively small. This encourages personal relationships across the various levels (faculty, staff, etc.). When problems develop, they tend to be addressed quickly and with greater care due to these connections.
