Find a second family at Quinnipiac
There are countless opportunities in which to get involved at Quinnipiac.
As a member of our faculty or staff, you will be a vital member of the university community. Lace up your skates and take the ice at our People’s United Center for a season of heart-pounding intramural ice hockey. Roll up your sleeves and perform community service with your colleagues and students as part of The Big Event. Or learn how to live a healthier lifestyle at one of our monthy health and wellness events.
Attend a conversation with a Nobel Laureate, participate in a Pilates class or learn a foreign language. Regardless of your choice, you will be supported by a dedicated and professional community.
Diversity and Inclusion
Celebrating our community
Your career is about more than your job. It’s about meeting new people with diverse experiences and perspectives. You’ll be part of a community that celebrates unique backgrounds, beliefs and identities.
As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we have a strong commitment to the principles and practices of diversity and inclusion, and we welcome candidates who will enhance that diversity.
Best of both worlds
Our southern New England location offers the charm and tradition of the region, with easy access to the culture and lifestyle of some of America‘s most interesting and vibrant cities.
Live the New England lifestyle by exploring the many local hiking and biking trails, visiting nearby seaside towns or apple picking at a local orchard. Just across the street from the Mount Carmel Campus is Sleeping Giant State Park, perfect for every ability level.
For a change of pace, we are located only 15 minutes from New Haven, where you will find a city bursting with energy and culture. Or jump on a train headed to New York City or Boston, which are both under 2 hours away.
Living Well is a university-wide initiative to provide Quinnipiac University faculty and staff with tools, resources and support to achieve their own wellness goals.
The Living Well team is dedicated to educating, motivating and empowering individuals to make healthy lifestyle choices by offering a variety of on-campus wellness events, and maintaining a health and wellness website with health tips and resources for everyday use, including links for fitness classes (free for all faculty and staff), healthy recipes and other helpful resources.
