As an employer, the University has an outstanding record of growth and stability for its employees.
The University has a strong commitment to career enrichment, employee advancement, and lifelong learning.

The Faculty and Staff working at the University are passionate about their field, expect excellence and our accountable for their work.

U.Va.’s compensation philosophy is based on the belief that employee talent is our greatest asset. Our goal is to attract, develop, and retain qualified employees through a variety of pay practices that reward performance and employee development.
Benefits are a vital part of the total University package for employees. In addition to health insurance, retirement plans, and flexible spending accounts, U.Va. employees may take advantage of the Education Benefits program, which is designed to encourage career development and lifelong learning. We also offer a Backup Care benefit for child and elder care.
Just as the undergraduates at U.Va. will look back at their time here as one of learning, growth, change, and exploration, so should our faculty and staff. When one reflects on a career at the University, it will stand out, as U.Va. does, for its uncommon excellence.
