Careers with UWC-USA

EMPLOYMENT

Those who work at UWC-USA understand that they are more than employees at a world-class institution: they are integral members of a campus community. Whether they teach, maintain the campus, or work in an office, each person recognizes the crucial role they play in educating tomorrow’s change-makers.

Living and Working in Montezuma

Most faculty live on campus with their families in school-provided housing. They typically know each of the 200 students by first name and are able to serve as mentors and role models in ways that are only possible through residential life. Those who live off-campus are just as enmeshed in the community; meals are shared in the dining hall, and many participate in student activities such as clubs, hikes, and service projects.

UWC-USA is committed to equal employment and volunteer opportunity without regard to age, ancestry, disability, national or ethnic origin, race, religious belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, political belief, or veteran status.
