It is my pleasure to welcome you as a new employee of Wilmington University. Our mission statement and marketing materials highlight our commitment to providing individual attention to students; however, we know that providing a caring, supportive work environment for our faculty and staff is key to everything we hope to accomplish here.
The University offers a variety of opportunities for personal and professional growth, and I encourage you to take advantage of as many of them as possible. We strive to promote respect, integrity, and compassion among ourselves and for our students. Higher education affords the promise of a better job, a higher salary, or a new career. Students come to us seeking the knowledge and the skills to make those promises real, and we must never forget that our students are our customers and serving them well is our primary goal.
Starting a new job is always stressful, but there are resources in place to help you and new colleagues are ready to answer any questions you may have. We’re happy to have you with us, and I look forward to working with you in the days ahead.
