What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

The balance between work and life, the appreciation of hard work during stressful times, the personal interest senior staff and management show, and the sense of a common goal between departments.

President's Statement

Western is a great place to work because our campus community values and emphasizes collaboration and respect among all employees. Our faculty and staff are not only exceptionally talented and engaged, but they also share a commitment to advancing inclusive success, enabling all of our students to succeed inside and outside of the classroom. That sense of common dedication and purpose is inspiring, and it makes me excited to be part of this wonderful community.
