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 31,000 organization representatives. As employers, colleges and universities face many unique HR challenges, and our mission is to provide the leadership, resources, learning opportunities and connections to help them get the job done. At CUPA-HR, we monitor trends, explore emerging workforce issues, conduct research, 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.

With CUPA-HR’s small staff of 32, you can get to know coworkers well. 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.

CUPA-HR is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.
