Higher Education is a special place, and our employees and students make our campus diverse and vibrant. Working at UA includes a variety of perks and benefits not common in other industries.

Additional perks and benefits may also include competitive insurance coverage, membership in one of Ohio’s public pension funds and access to invest in other retirement accounts, paid holidays and vacation time, sick time for yourself or to care for a family member, and much more.
