Southern New Hampshire University – Why Work For Us?


We’re idealists. Innovators. Mission-driven global citizens who care about making the world a better place. At SNHU, we believe in the power of education to transform lives— and it makes for much more than your typical 9 to 5. In fact, it’s one of many reasons we’ve been voted one of The Chronicle of Higher Education’s Best Colleges to Work For every year since its inception.

Day-in and day-out, our learners give us the inspiration we need to get out of bed in the morning. We measure our success by their success, and each of us takes part in it – from student advisors and instructors, to behind-the-scenes administrators, web developers, strategists and marketers. Our learners remind us that the effort we put in makes a difference in their lives…and ours.

 

Ours is a culture of service, gratitude and an unwavering commitment to doing the right thing. As part of this commitment, we partner with like-minded organizations to promote life-changing programs and scholarships for all learners, especially those for whom education is not a guarantee. Because we believe no barriers, whether social, geographic or economic, should stand in the way of even the loftiest goals.   

Celebrating success is part of our DNA—whether it’s a surprise diploma delivery, a West-Coast graduation ceremony across the country, or rewarding our employees for the amazing work they do every day for our learners.

Here are just a few things we offer employees:

  • Generous Paid Time Off
  • Retirement Plans w/ Competitive Employer Contribution
  • Affordable Medical, Dental, and Vision
  • Tuition Reimbursement
  • Gym Reimbursement
  • Volunteer Time Off
