Why Join Our Team

We are a community – it's what brings our students here and what keeps our people here. Faculty and staff take pride in building meaningful relationships with students and co-workers, and supporting individual paths to success. 

We are committed to fostering a highly personalized, equitable, diverse, and inclusive community in which all members can experience the powerful sense of belonging. We have been ranked #1 in student satisfaction for the past four years thanks in no small part to our unique community-centered culture. In acknowledgement of our exemplary workplace policies and programs, and our commitment to sustainability, we have received a number of national awards. We specialize in business and economics, education, humanities and social sciences, music, science, social work, and theology.
