Strategic Focus: Employee Satisfaction

To become an employer of choice, it is important for us to take a holistic approach to faculty and staff engagement. Through compensation increases, investing in technological and systems upgrades, working with community partners to make Westminster and the surrounding area more appealing and welcoming so employees don’t have to commute as far, providing pathways for professional development, and more opportunities for community engagement among faculty, staff, and administration, we seek to make all aspects of being an employee of McDaniel College a valuable experience.
