Fulfilling our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
It is our intent to achieve our mission in the following ways:
- Creating a collaborative working and learning community that is respectful, inclusive and valuing of diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds.

- Promoting the transformative exchange of ideas in a high-quality professional curriculum infused with multicultural competencies, which prepares graduates to be effective in a multicultural society.
On-Site and Off-Site Positions
Capella's offices are designed with an open work space setting and common fluorescent lighting. Typical of a corporate business office, there is frequent co-worker interaction and corresponding noise levels.
The majority of positions involve frequent usage of a telephone, PC and standard monitors.
Unless otherwise noted, our positions would require minimal (0–10 percent) business travel or lifting requirements.
Some of our positions are designed to be remote "home office" settings. These include Faculty Chairs, Core Faculty, Adjunct Faculty and most Channel Partner positions.
Employees working out of a home office are responsible for providing an appropriate office space, organization, communication tools, and related items. These would include arranging for high speed internet connection, fax, printer and a dedicated phone line for business use. Specifics regarding expense coverage and reimbursement vary based on individual position categories; Human Resources can provide additional information.
These positions require the frequent use of a telephone, PC and monitors. There are minimal lifting requirements unless otherwise noted.
Work hours are generally flexible, commensurate with an exempt employee working out of a home office. These roles will typically require frequent engagement with Capella headquarters during business hours.
Travel is required in many of the roles which are based out of a home office: Faculty and Chair roles require travel to learner events periodically during the year, which are reimbursed; most Channel Sales roles are primarily external customer facing, and require frequent travel (local and national). Employees are required to provide their own local transportation (and appropriate licensure and insurance as needed.)
