If You Want to Go Far, Come Here
As Highlanders, our staff members are a part of the world’s most prestigious public university system, conducting meaningful work that propels thoughts and ideas forward. Their dedication and enthusiasm have helped to lift us higher as both a university and community. We’re among the top 1.3% of universities worldwide, according to the Center for World University Rankings, and continue to be named the nation’s leader for social mobility by U.S. News. In 2023, we also became members of the Association of American Universities, or AAU, comprised of the country’s leading research universities.
At UC Riverside, we want all of our Highlanders to feel a sense of belonging, motivation, and sustainable progress. That’s why we make sure our staff members receive exceptional benefits, in addition to the intellectual and cultural advantages of being a member of the UC community. Here, work-life balance is a priority. And with access to our region’s diverse geography, from the desert to the coast, as well as Riverside’s vibrant cultural and recreational activities, it’s also attainable.
On campus, diversity equals vitality. Among our senior leadership, 50% are women, many are first-generation college graduates, and several were born outside of the United States. All lead to inspire, inviting and encouraging staff to create, innovate, and accelerate bold ideas for transformative change.
