“I’ve been with Villanova since 2004. My two daughters were able to benefit from Villanova—one with an internship here and the other with the tuition benefits that come with having a parent work at Villanova. Working here has always given me confidence in what I do and the job security is reassuring.” -Michael B., Mechanic

"Villanova is a community where you are welcomed, supported and given opportunities to develop as a teacher, a researcher and as a human being. New faculty benefit from several programs including summer research grants and a fourth-year junior sabbatical. Teaching small classes has allowed me to engage and build relationships with my students that might not be possible at a larger university." -Ed F., Associate Dean & Associate Professor

"I work for an amazing team that offers professional development funding to travel to national conferences. I have also had incredible supervisors who advocated for me through advancement and professional development opportunities. Everyone at Villanova is full of joy and led by a shared mission. " -Ashley L., Associate Director


"Villanova offers many ongoing efforts to improve the well-being of our community. I’ve been fortunate to take advantage of many of them including tuition remission—working on my MBA—and professional development. Working here allows me to pursue my academic career while utilizing my skills to further my personal and professional goals. Villanova has also helped me to develop a good work/life balance through flexibility and wellness programs." -Joyce H., Coordinator

“While there are numerous financial and professional benefits to working at my alma mater, something I always come back to is the Augustinian notion to 'become what you are not yet.' Whether it be through the advancement of my education, the opportunities to share my talents through teaching and service, or just the simple, everyday interactions I have with extraordinary colleagues and students, my life horizons are continuously expanded.” -Steve S., Director
