Pros

CUC has a heart for serving students. Many of the staff are caring individuals, and try to model the mission statement and model servant leadership by example. CUC really excels at Early Childhood Education.

Cons

CUC doesn't have a very coherent vision plan for addressing the many financial, operational and academic issues that face the institution. This is evident from the top down throughout the entire institution. Power struggles and bad politics abound, most notably between the graduate and undergraduate administration. Administration seems either unable or unwilling to make the tough decisions and implement the necessary changes to keep CUC a viable institution. Some areas need some serious trimming of the fat, while others struggle to maintain a minimum support presence due to under-staffing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CUC needs a top-down evaluation of all academic programs, administrative practices, and staff distribution.

    Pros

    Great medical benefits. Very flexible work environment. Work and personal life are easy to separate. Great tuition benefits.

    Cons

    If you're not LCMS, then it's hard to fit in the work culture. Religion is front and center in a lot of things. Very limited growth opportunities. High level leadership been there so long. They're very much set in their old ways.
