“I have always thought of USS as a family. When I visited Grenada and met the SGU team, that feeling even intensified as I realized we’re all working together for a common goal. I feel comfortable reaching out to anyone within the organization for help and guidance, which speaks volumes. It’s really important to me to be part of an organization where I feel supported and valued, but most of all, I really enjoy feeling that my opinions are being heard and that leadership uses my ideas to enhance the student experience. It’s also important to note that collaboration is always encouraged from management, across the entire organization. There are always opportunities to work with other departments to improve processes or implement new initiatives.”

The information and intelligence that my team and I provide feels purposeful and impactful. What we do matters to the business, it’s employees and our students. I’m proud to be part of USS/SGU and the work we do because we provide medical professionals into the world and also give students a pathway to achieve what they have worked hard for.”

“The most interesting thing about working for SGU is the people. The leadership is really committed to hiring the most qualified and experienced candidates but also the “best fit” for the team and roles. We truly have a blend of personalities and energies across the organization and what makes it all work, is the commitment of leadership to train and invest in each team member through internal and external training and coaching opportunities that focus on each individual and the team as whole at the same time. SGU is a really diverse organization and that was also very important to me when I joined. Working for an organization that truly values and promotes diversity and a cohesive culture really matter to me and I am proud that SGU is not afraid to discuss how societal issues can affect us as individuals; whether it is the pandemic and its effects on our mental health and daily routine, or tackling tough conversations about diversity and privilege. As a woman, expat and ethnic minority, the values reflected through these conversations really matter to me and influence social change from within the organization.”

“The work environment here in USS is just amazing. We all work as a team here. Whenever I get stuck with a job-related issue, my team members as well as my direct supervisor assist me as soon as possible so I can continue with my job. Everyone here helps each other out with a genuine smile and a positive attitude. In addition to that, we have three amazing State Parks we can drive to during our lunch breaks. Whenever I want to relax or just enjoy the view, I can drive to these State Parks in less than 10 minutes. USS also has their own private beautiful garden right in the backyard of the Great River office. The garden is a perfect place to just relax and take your mind off things. Another fantastic benefit working at USS is that we have a hybrid schedule. I believe this flexibility makes the work environment so much better than other jobs.”

Jaime Surace

Manager of Scholarships
MREO

“I have the amazing opportunity to assist students in fulfilling their dream of becoming a doctor. Our incoming students come from diverse backgrounds committing themselves to academic excellence, humanitarian efforts, healthcare careers, giving back to underserved populations and more. Through scholarship I am the lucky one to acknowledge these efforts and be a part of their continued journey of being a doctor.”

Brad Wade

Regional Director

“The fact that we are a niche product in a highly specialized area, and which provides opportunities to students for a sought-after subject which has little global capacity in general for the demand, makes SGU one of the most interesting places to work. The challenge of finding the right students who fit SGU specifically, in a market like Africa, is far more rewarding than representing a large general university with dozens of faculties. The bonds you form with these students and their families and agents or school counsellors as a result are strong and long-lasting. That we are contributing to closing the gap in the shortage of doctors around the world is rewarding in and of itself.”
