A conversation with Kim Upton, Director of Human Resources:

Why would someone want to work for Hodges University?

“The top three reasons would be:

The people who work here. Hodges for many is a second family, and I have never seen so many people have such a passion and work so hard together for the common goal of making Hodges the best university not only in SW Florida, but anywhere.

We have a very diverse and inclusive workforce as well – everyone here is from someplace else – and I think because of that employees are much more accepting of people from other cultures or backgrounds.

We are a very innovative organization with how we present classes to students, and have become an institution that is very flexible and can swiftly change as the needs of the university or higher education demand.”

Why are some of the benefits of working for Hodges U?

“Hodges University is located on two beautiful campuses in sunny Naples and Fort Myers. Both campuses are tobacco free and and have recently earned Blue Zone Workplace designations, (The first higher education institution to do so in the region) which encourages healthy habits. In addition, all full-time positions include a generous benefit package which may include health benefits, insurance coverage, and tuition waivers.”

What others are saying about working with Hodges.

What is the best thing about working here?

“Watching students lives change. It just makes everything I do here meaningful.” Teresa Araque,  AVP Marketing/Public Information Officer

“Family.  I have my “home” family and my “work” family and I couldn’t do without either one. We have crazy days just like every other organization, but at the end of the day what we do here is really special.  People come here to change the trajectory of their entire family’s well being and we get to help.” Erica Vogt, Executive Vice President of Administrative Operations

“One of the best things about working at Hodges University is the close knit and supportive culture of our staff. They are the most dedicated and professional group of people I have ever had the privilege of working with.” John D. Meyer, DBA, President
