Which of our nine institute values most resonates with you? 

We celebrate collaboration

For me this is getting to network with other campus partners whether it is event planning, relationship building, or gathering resources for our team, student leaders and residents to provide a quality residential experience. Our residents will feel more empowered to connect within the community, and if there are areas where support is needed, they can have information readily available at their fingertips.

What is an employee benefit that is important to you?

Health and Wellbeing Rewards

I thoroughly enjoy health & wellness so it was easy for me to dive right into the USG-sponsored Virgin Pulse challenges offered within our benefits package. The competitions, seminars, and health tips have been exceptional! The program really keeps me on track with my goals and has plenty of incentives along the way including the 200 dollar bonus for completing a variety of health and wellbeing tasks within a year.
