What's it like to work at the Big Ten Academic Alliance?
"Working for the Big Ten Academic Alliance is very energizing. The headquarters team is incredible – smart, strategic, interesting, quirky, and dedicated to top performance."
"Our portfolio of activities today is very different than it was 5 years ago – the things we do know we couldn't have even
dreamed of doing back then, but building on our successes has allowed today's projects to become realities."
"Because of the breadth of areas covered by the work of the Big Ten Academic Alliance, there are many opportunities for us to model collaboration in our own office (between technology and libraries, or between student programs and international projects, etc.)."
