SNHU, which has been named a “Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education for 11 consecutive years, will hire approximately 150 staff members initially, with plans to hire 300 total staff members in Tucson by 2021. Interested applicants can now apply to all open positions at www.snhu.edu/tucson.

SNHU offers competitive pay and benefits, including medical insurance, tuition benefits, employer funded retirement plan, low to no cost dental, vision and life insurance, a generous PTO program (5 weeks accrued), as well as 10 paid holidays.

We are thrilled to be in Tucson.”

SNHU received approval to operate in Tucson by the AZ State Board for Private Postsecondary Education. In addition, the Pima County Board of Supervisors granted final approval of SNHU’s property lease in mid-August. 

“We’re thrilled Southern New Hampshire University has chosen a prominent location for its new operations in downtown Tucson,” said Joe Snell, president & CEO, Sun Corridor Inc. “SNHU joins other corporate neighbors Caterpillar, Hexagon Mining, Madden Media, Tucson Electric Power, Ernst & Young and others who find our downtown vibrant and attractive to their workforce.”

This new center will allow SNHU to better serve online students in western time zones who currently only have access to live student services until 12 a.m. ET/9 p.m. PT.
