Dual Career Resources

The decision to accept a new position and relocate is a personal one. Washington and Lee University understands that your decision to relocate, as well as your happiness here, is greatly influenced by opportunities for your spouse or partner.

Washington and Lee has responded to the emergence of dual-career partners by providing job search information to the partners of new employees. While we cannot guarantee placement, we will work with you to explore local options. Applicants may contact the work-life coordinator for dual-career assistance. Applicants are also encouraged to initiate conversations with department chairs or supervisors during the interview process. Services are extended for one calendar year to the spouse/partners of employees. Services for spouse/partners beyond the one year outside of this are available by request if dual career caseload allows.

Washington and Lee is a founding member of the Mid-Atlantic HERC, which includes job postings from a variety of colleges, universities and research institutions, as well as a dual-career search function for all member organizations. HERC searches will include postings from member institutions including James Madison University, University of Richmond, the University of Virginia and Virginia Military Institute.
