What is the Great Place Initiative?
You can’t have a great place without great people, and VCU is no exception. The faculty, staff and students make it the wonderful place it is today.
The Great Place Initiative is an effort to celebrate and enhance this human element and to ensure that everyone who interacts with VCU — whether a professor or a parent, a student or a local contractor — feels valued and respected as a result of VCU’s commitment to service excellence.
As part of the initiative, we invite faculty and staff to join the conversation about not only what already makes VCU a great place, but what we can do to make it even better.
Virginia Commonwealth University is a great place, brimming with opportunities to learn, create and innovate. And that makes it a great place to work. As a VCU employee, you have the opportunity to:
- Further your education. Take advantage of VCU’s tuition reimbursement, whether you’d like to earn an M.B.A. or take a class in Italian.
- Achieve work-life balance. VCU offers on-site child care, flextime, a travel program and discounts on everything from wireless service to theater performances.
- Take care of your health. The VCU Gold program gives staff priority status when scheduling “new patient” appointments at VCU Medical Center specialty offices.
- Be part of a dynamic community. Whether it’s running a marathon to benefit the Massey Cancer Center or volunteering with VCU’s Green Zone program, there’s a way for everyone to get involved at VCU.
