Representing a vast array of departments and walks of life, here’s what WGU employees eagerly had to share about how their individual roles play an important part in WGU’s unified mission to help students thrive and succeed.
“I feel so blessed to be a part of WGU. I am going into my 5th year here and I can’t express how happy I am with my job. I believe part of this feeling is the fact that we all work towards a common goal together as a team. If one doesn’t find the way, there is always someone else giving you a hand to help you get up and continue the journey. This is especially true with the students. We are here to give them a hand to find their purpose in life.
"As a Latin American (Hispanic) educator, I want to help our community find their purpose in life because we all matter in this world. Which is why I am so proud to be a founding member of our new LatinX Owls Group. I think this is an important time at WGU because a group like this is given the opportunity for employees from all the department to collaborate and help reach WGU’s goals and most importantly, to give a hand to all those individuals who want to reach their purpose.”
