What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential Statement

WesternU has a truly unique culture and configuration. The University was founded both humbly and audaciously only forty years ago on the bedrock of humanistic science. It has since grown to have the most health science graduate schools of any university in the country yet all on the close-knit campus much like a liberal arts college. Moreover, this special institution has risen humbly from nothing by sheer energy and effort of people who love it.

Employee Comment

I am proud of my team. I work hard because I know everyone else works hard, and our work contributes to the success of the university. The support is unreal at WesternU.
