What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

How quickly and effectively we were able to transition and adapt to the changes we had to make this past year. Even though it was unexpected, our department didn't let that interfere with getting our work done and making sure our students were taken care of. We have even found more efficient ways of accomplishing some tasks, which will continue to be in use after we are all back on campus.
