Sweet Briar College values every individual for his or her talents, commitment and diverse identity. We are a close-knit community where our dedication to students, excellence and sense of belonging are to be recognized and cultivated in every area. Our talent is our greatest asset and we are intentional in shattering silos to optimize the breadth and depth of each individual’s experience and skill; transcending the typical role description. Our environment is unique. We come together, support, challenge and recognize one another. We share a commitment to this special place and give our time, passion and treasure in a variety of ways towards a common purpose. We call this One Sweet Briar. We believe our faculty and staff community culture enriches the college as a better place to work, live, learn and thrive.
All the reasons Sweet Briar is such a special place to spend four years as a student make it a meaningful and dynamic work environment. Faculty and staff are part of a vibrant community that inspires collaboration and innovation on every part of campus. The Office of Human Resources supports all employees to make sure they have what they need to thrive as part of the Sweet Briar community — surrounded by natural beauty and friendly neighbors.
It’s true: We’re like family here. Thirty percent of us live on campus, and those who don’t live nearby. We come together outside of work as often as we can to bond with each other, celebrate our successes and learn from one another. Maybe it’s a potluck at the boathouse, an honors awards ceremony, a lecture or a party at the president’s house. We’re all part of one mission that is bigger than any of us: educating compassionate and confident women leaders for the 21st century.
