Why Work at WCU?
As a WCU employee, you can contribute to our mission of student success, be part of an active campus community with strong commitments and values, grow and advance both personally and professionally, and enjoy generous benefits to support your well-being and financial stability.
"We’re a community of educators, and that title of “educator” extends beyond the classroom. Educators work behind the scenes to keep the campus beautiful and ensure we all have the equipment and space we need to do our best. Educators enhance student experiences, uphold the University’s mission, vision, values, and traditions. Educators make West Chester University a place where employees and students feel safe, respected, and valued. Together we have made the University a great place to work.”
- President, Christopher Fiorentino Employee Appreciation ceremony June 2023
There are many ways for employees and their families to get involved on campus. Check out the planetarium or children's library, cheer on the Rams at a NCAA DII sporting event, explore the arts in our theaters and exhibition halls, catch a discounted movie or find something that catches your interest at one of the many campus events. Give back through volunteerism, participate in affinity groups, or continue to learn and grow with professional development opportunities. Find your community, find your path.
Our annual Employee Appreciation event is just one way that WCU fosters community and recognizes staff and faculty
