What makes your college a great place to work?

Presidential 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, they share a commitment to advance inclusive success, to enable all 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.

Employee Comment
