PGS is not a typical higher ed institution. We are more like a fast-paced social enterprise with a high commitment to academic excellence and student outcomes. In addition, we are in a “rebirth” phase. A high proportion of the staff is new, and we are launching into an invigorating era of program diversification and growth. Our mission is at the core of all we do, and our team highly values social justice and environmental sustainability.
Our team will be working remotely until summer 2021, at which time we plan to have an office near a BART station in San Francisco or Oakland. We compensate our employees well, offer unlimited/flex vacation, and are united in our common mission around sustainability, social justice, and education.
