More About Working at CUPA-HR

CUPA-HR is the national association for human resource professionals at colleges and universities. Our membership includes more than 2,000 organizations and over 32,000 organization representatives. As employers, colleges and universities face many unique workforce challenges, and our mission is to provide the leadership, resources, learning opportunities and connections to enable our members to lead on campus. At CUPA-HR, we monitor trends, explore emerging workforce issues, conduct research, advocate on a federal level, and promote strategic discussions among colleges and universities. We believe in championing diversity and inclusion, striving for constant innovation, upholding the highest levels of service innovation and maintaining integrity in everything we do. We are located in beautiful Knoxville, Tennessee, which is known for great music, a fantastic culinary scene and is one of America’s Best Adventure Towns.

CUPA-HR is a small staff of 31 close-knit professionals. The atmosphere is one of collaboration and inclusiveness, where differences in thought and experience are embraced and celebrated.

Wellness is also a priority at CUPA-HR. We even have a fitness facility in our office building that can be used before, during or after work.

Benefits for regular, full-time employees consist of paid leave time with 12 paid holidays and a generous vacation policy; company-paid basic life insurance and company-premium-sharing on medical and dental benefits; mandatory 5% employee contribution to a retirement savings plan plus an automatic 10% company contribution (yes, that’s 15% a year!); and a casual dress code and flexible work schedule that includes Fridays off during the summer.
