A hidden gem in higher education

Assistant Professor (Current Employee) Topeka, KS

ProsI have worked for Washburn in several capacities since 2004. In all cases, I have my work enormously rewarding. As a faculty member, I found Washburn offers a reasonable salary with excellent benefits. Support for travel , research, and professional development, as well as for student travel, is extraordinary. I recommend Washburn without reservation.

ConsChange can be slow and change by committee even slower, and that is as true at Washburn as it is at other universities.

Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge that a paradigm shift took place in higher ed almost two decades ago. Embrace opportunities to offer students more technology, more opportunities for flexible schedules -- in short, work towards deceloping an increasingly innovative culture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
