I came to ALA for the students, but stayed because of the colleagues - the staff and faculty who are the heartbeat of this place. With them, I get to learn every day. I get to be challenged and I get to grow. With them, the work is more fun. The work becomes more meaningful because it is done with people I care about.

Director of Teaching & Learning

Working at ALA has been one of the most fulfilling experiences I have enjoyed in my lifetime. I have the opportunity to work with teams of talented and committed people that inspire me to live my best life. My most cherished experience at ALA is being part of a community that cares deeply and with intention for its own, just like a family would. Some of my closest friends are people I work with every day. I remain inspired by their commitment towards mission building and our community.

Work is not always about getting the task done. There is more meaning to the work at ALA. From my experience, there is a deliberate attempt to get to know the person you are working with. This opens up opportunities to leverage each other’s strength and build on each other’s weaknesses as growth areas.
