    Committed to student success

    By living out our values of excellence, integrity, impact and community, we create an environment where each student feels supported, connected and empowered.

Take the time to make business personal

The best gift is a meaningful one. In today’s always-online world, the best way to make business personal is to make time to meet with one another face-to-face. Winter break is an opportunity to take a breath and reconnect before the new year. Whether it’s coffee, convocation, or the W. P. Carey Holiday Party + Lip Sync Battle, we challenge you to spend a few minutes welcoming new team members, and catching up with coworkers you haven’t seen in a while. Work life can get busy, but if we take the time to embody the values of integrity, community, excellence, and impact, we will be successful in creating authentic connections and together we will continue transforming W. P. Carey into a place where innovation can flourish.
