Employee Benefits

Valparaiso University understands that different people have different needs when it comes to their benefits.  That's why we have carefully constructed a benefits package that gives you choices.

Valparaiso University's Shield of Character represents the attributes that define the University.  One of those qualities is the ability to protect faculty, staff and their families from the risks that are most threatening to their health and financial security. This protection is developed in partnership with you--the University offers you a choice in benefits that you can use to create your own personal Benefits Shield of Protection
