Winona State University

Founded in 1858, Winona State University is a regional public university and the oldest member of the Minnesota State system.

WSU offers more than 200 majors and programs with campuses in Winona and Rochester, MN.

Students have opportunities for internships with some of the Midwest’s most prestigious companies and organizations including Mayo Clinic, IBM, Fastenal, and 3M.

Widely known for its stunning natural setting, the WSU Winona campus is nestled between picturesque bluffs and the Mississippi River—meaning rock climbing, paddle-boarding, hiking, kayaking, and more are within a mile of campus.

WSU’s second campus is located in Minnesota’s third largest city: Rochester. The city is a dynamic hub for industry, arts, and culture, and it’s consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the U.S.

Though much attention is given to the thousands of students WSU serves every year, we know that we’d be nothing without our employees.

If you’re interested in improving the world in an academic setting, WSU invites you to join our community.

We have a lot to offer our employees at both the Winona and Rochester campuses in terms of social activities, cultural opportunities, and ways to get involved—not to mention the beautiful scenery.

WSU has employment opportunities at all levels, from administrative to faculty to service jobs.

WSU offers comprehensive health insurance—including dental and vision plans—and life insurance at an affordable cost for employees.

Accrue vacation time as well as sick time every paycheck and enjoy 11 paid holidays every year.

At WSU, there’s room to move as your career progresses.

You could move up to more responsibilities or move between departments while staying in the same role.

You’ll find opportunities for professional development with conferences and seminars to keep your skills sharp.

Continue your education with tuition waiver benefits that can be used at any Minnesota State institution.

You’ll also have mandatory and voluntary options for retirement savings—maybe even a pension, depending on your union.
