OUR CULTURE

.

We don’t just share office space at Post University. We share a commitment to quality, excellence and success through education. We are passionate about improving education and changing lives. That common drive is something that makes working at Post University more than just a job.

Doing Well by Doing Good

Tom Samph

Tom Samph, Ph.D., CEO, Post University

Our success as a university is guided by our commitment to our students, employees and community, and is built on a simple principle:  Do Well by Doing Good. That’s why we place such an emphasis on innovation, quality and ethical leadership in everything from academic programs to employee training and development. At Post, we believe that difficult choices are made easy when expectations are clear.  Our expectation is that our employees will do the right things for students, each other and the communities in which we all live and work.

That’s why we’re not just looking for people who want a job; we’re looking for people who want a career.  We are building a team of highly motivated and dedicated employees who are passionate about changing lives through higher education.


Focus on Students

Don Mroz, Ph.D., President, Post University

We are not a research institution or a ‘Big 10’ school. There are no ivory towers on our beautiful New England campus. But, everything from our academic programs to our NCAA Division II athletics to our Online Education Institute reflects our deep commitment to preparing students for successful careers. We “get” that our culture is what makes us great, and everyone takes that seriously. That’s why everyone from admissions counselors to tuition planners, academic advisors and faculty members work together as advocates for student success.

Diversity and Achievement

Veronica Montalvo

Veronica Montalvo, MBA, Senior Vice President of Enrollment Management for the Online Education Institute of Post University

Our employees come from many different industries and backgrounds, not just higher education. The diversity in our workforce mirrors the diversity in our student body. At Post, we’re looking for people who not only want to help themselves. We want team members who want to help others and will honor the commitment and investment they are making to reach their personal and professional goals. So, if you tend to see the glass as half full rather than half empty, if you’re interested in proposing solutions rather than just presenting problems, and if you’re goal-oriented and willing to constantly grow and challenge yourself, Post University may be the perfect place for you!


Innovation, Leadership, Quality and Results

Jill Buban, Ph.D., Assistant Provost for Research and Innovation

At Post, we have spent more than 120 years adapting to changing times.  Our first classrooms were filled with typewriters. Today, our classrooms are filled with computers and smartphones. They reach far beyond our traditional campus to airplane seats and kitchen tables, living room sofas and home offices. Our students no longer hail solely from the Connecticut region; they come from around the country and around the world. So, how do we honor our history while leading change at the same time? By constantly looking forward. By embracing a culture of creativity, innovation and continuous improvement. By hiring people who want to work hard and are passionate about what they do.

Appreciation and Respect

Madelaine Kelsey

Madelaine Kelsey, Director of Human Resources

At Post, we know that we are only as strong as the foundation built by our employees. We work in a very collaborative environment, focusing not just on those things that benefit our students but on the things that help us all do our jobs better. We also recognize that in order for employees to become engaged, committed and proactive members of our team, they need to know that their skills, experiences, values and perspectives are appreciated and valued. That’s why our goal is to create an organization where all people are respectful and respected. 


Giving Back, Providing Support

Scott Allen, Chief Administrative Officer

At Post, our commitment to helping others extends far beyond our Waterbury campus. As individuals and as a community, we volunteer and provide financial support to organizations and causes that support those in need.  From a University-wide commitment to supporting the United Way through optional payroll deductions to running in 5K races that raise money for our Troops to collecting food and toys for families in need, we work together to make a difference in our community.
