Reviews

Suggestions for improvement

  • Education should never become a business or for-profit. Enrollment shoudl be based in merit, not bottom line.

What I like about the company

I have terrific colleagues who are devoted to their work and to the students at our university. We work together toward a common goal.

What I dislike about the company

Departments can be prioritized based on money they bring in - that's academia.

Company Culture

A lot of alumni work here so if you aren’t familiar with the campus culture, you will feel left out

Challenging Work

Systems are in place to avoid headaches

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more outside talent. It is not a bad thing to hire externally.

What I like about the company

My staff here was caring and considerate when it came to family matters. So when I had to take personal time, I knew it wasn’t going to be held against and that people would step in to assist with my job.

What I dislike about the company

Accessibility. The facilities are dated and are not accommodating to individuals who may require ADA accommodations.
