A focus on HR means a focus on you.

VCU is a great place, and we’re working to make it even better.

Virginia Commonwealth University is a great place. You make it a great place. When we started the Great Place Initiative, you spoke and we listened. Today, we are implementing a new HR plan that helps make VCU an even greater place — a place where you can do meaningful work, a place of opportunity, where your success is supported and your career thrives. Exciting parts of this plan include career development opportunities, market and merit-based pay, and mentoring and networking. Learn more about the Great Place: HR Redesign.
