WesternU named “Great College to Work For”

For the second consecutive year, Western University of Health Sciences has been named a “Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

WesternU received recognition in two areas: Benefits & Compensation and Respect & Appreciation.

“There is a visible sense of family and community at Western University of Health Sciences,” said WesternU President Philip Pumerantz, PhD. “We cultivate this environment by recruiting and retaining top-notch employees who believe character in a student is as important as high grades.

“Our faculty and staff set an example to students by treating each other with respect, giving generously of their time in the community for charitable causes, and reaching across disciplines to work interprofessionally.”
