At Cedar Crest, people are important. We believe that higher learning leads to visionary lives and better circumstances for families and communities. Well-being is thus central to how our diverse community—both employees and students—studies and lives, works and plays in order to achieve the goals we set for ourselves.
Cedar Crest will continue to build a diverse and inclusive community of staff and faculty members who are motivated by our mission to expand higher-education access for gender equity as a women’s college, to enable adult undergraduates to earn their degrees, and to provide excellence in advanced practitioner programs that help others in need. In doing so, Cedar Crest will support employee and student well-being by being a place-of-choice for members of our community to develop their talents, collaborate with their colleagues, be recognized for their accomplishments, and integrate their personal life, work, and study time to achieve a meaningful quality of life.
