Our People Make Us More Than a Great University
Western New England University is much more than its educational offerings; its strength is found in the individuals who educate and support students to thrive in our learning community. We attract students who are hard working, ambitious, curious, and caring with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. They excel in our close-knit campus where they find the confidence to push their abilities to conquer new challenges and think critically about the world around them and their place in it. Join them and prepare to do more, achieve more, and be more than you ever imagined.
Honors and Awards
Honorary degrees are awarded to those who exemplify the core values of our institution and who inspire us to realize our own potential. President’s Medallion Award and citations are bestowed upon individuals and groups who have distinguished themselves in a particular field or in service to an important cause. We celebrate our outstanding faculty with awards for teaching excellence.
