Office of People & Culture


Colleges and universities are the epicenter of lifelong learning and provide transformational experiences that shape personal and professional growth and development. Jacksonville University, located in the heart of Jacksonville - one of Florida's largest cities and most diverse populations, thrives on empowering this vision and fosters the creative and scholarly landscape for these opportunities to unfold.
