Founded in 1886, Yeshiva University (YU) has a strong tradition of combining Jewish scholarship with academic excellence and achievement in the liberal arts, sciences, medicine, law, business, social work, Jewish studies, education, psychology, and more.
We are a leading global educational institution that employs over 2,000 people across our various campus locations -- Wilf Campus, Beren Campus, Brookdale Center, Resnick Campus in the Bronx, the Gruss Institute in Jerusalem, the Boys High School in Manhattan and the Girls High School in Queens. From the distinguished faculty who teach here, to the dedicated staff, we work to fulfill our mission: to “bring wisdom to life” through all that we teach, by all that we do and for all those we serve. We seek to attract and retain engaged and committed individuals who contribute to an exciting working environment, where there is a sense of community and belonging, balanced with a significant cross section of people from diverse backgrounds working and studying together.
The University offers an excellent compensation package, and a broad range of employee benefit plans, including immediate participation in the University’s retirement plan. Staff members are typically eligible for four weeks paid vacation each year and a shuttle to nearby subway locations.
The Yeshiva University Office of Student Life oversees student government, student clubs and events, Shabbat programming, orientations, new student programming, Service Learning missions and leadership development programs and the ANSWERS hotline. The mission of our office is to enhance campus life in real and meaningful ways. We seek to increase student pride, develop strong student leaders and instill a sense of communal life at YU.
The Student Life team is constantly engaging with students, other university offices and the broader community. We are always evaluating new ideas and searching for new ways to tackle challenges.
