Employment: Working from Home

Living and Working Remotely

As an online university, WGU offers a unique opportunity (for some positions) to work remotely from home. Our online interface provides convenient connectivity with vital resources while allowing you to enjoy the comforts of working from a home office. Working from home offers many benefits including reduction of gas costs, wear and tear on vehicles, and a more flexible schedule.

Diversity Statement

A diverse faculty is pivotal to the success of Western Governors University’s mission to improve the quality and expand access to post-secondary educational opportunities by providing a means for individuals to learn independent of time or place and to earn competency-based degrees and other credentials that are credible to both academic institutions and employers.

We maintain that achieving diversity requires an enduring commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms and behaviors.

Throughout our work, we will support diversity in all of its forms, encompassing age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race and religion.
