See how we are unlike any university you've ever seen. VCU’s mission is to advance knowledge and student success. VCU HR supports the university mission by recruiting and retaining a progressive and diverse faculty, staff and senior leadership with the skills and talents to advance quality teaching, learning, research and creative expression.
At VCU, the focus is on learning, research, creativity, service, and discovery. VCU offers employees a generous leave package, career paths for advancement, competitive pay, and an opportunity to do mission-driven work.
Virginia Commonwealth University employees are invited to use the job summary tool to view VCU job information, market salary ranges and comparison data for other positions.
Career pathing is the process of aligning opportunities for employee career growth with available talent within the organization. This process helps employees map out their career trajectory to see the next best steps in their career.
In annual survey, VCU staff report increased job satisfaction
VCU News recently highlighted the results of the 2023 HR annual survey. Understanding the drivers of employee retention is mission-critical because it impacts our ability to achieve all other strategic goals through data-driven workforce planning. Comparisons to last year's university-wide survey data show growth in satisfaction across 15 areas of employee interest. VCU HR conducts this survey annually to learn what is most important to our employees.
