Working at VU

Vanderbilt is a world renowned university because of the innovation, work ethic and collegiality of more than 8,500 employees. From contributions to higher learning to caring for our community, Vanderbilt owes its accomplishments and reputation to staff and faculty who bring skill, drive and innovation to campus day after day.

We welcome those who are interested in growth and development in a caring, culturally sensitive and professional atmosphere. Most of us spend much of our lives at work, so we want to be part of maintaining a workplace in which people support one another and encourage reaching for excellence. Many high-achieving employees stay at Vanderbilt because of the personal and professional growth they experience and because of their appreciation of Vanderbilt’s benefits, public events and discussions, athletic opportunities, beautiful setting and, above all, sense of community and purpose.

Vanderbilt and its employees share a set of mutual expectations that have been created with productivity, legality, fairness and safety always in mind. We believe our investment in training and compensating employees multiplies in value when we enable individuals to deliver their best performance for the benefit of us all.
