Texas Lutheran University Named a 2016 Great Colleges to Work For®
July 18, 2016
For the fifth consecutive year, Texas Lutheran University is one of the nation’s great colleges to work for according to a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The results were released in The Chronicle's ninth annual report on The Academic Workplace.
In all, only 93 out of 281 universities surveyed received "Great Colleges to Work For®" recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium and large institutions, with TLU included among the universities with 2,999 students or fewer.
The university received honors in collaborative governance, confidence in senior leadership, teaching environment, and tenure clarity and process.
“Our campus culture is one of our most important assets,” said TLU President Dr. Stuart Dorsey. “To be recognized by The Chronicle for a fifth consecutive year is not only an extraordinary accolade, it’s representative of the dedication and commitment of our faculty and staff. TLU is a great place to work because of them and all they do for the university.”
Results were based upon a two-part assessment process including an institutional audit of demographics and workplace policies from each university, as well as a survey administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether a college received the Great College title was employee feedback.
As the nation’s premier source of news about colleges and universities, The Chronicle recognizes the outstanding workplace and innovative educational experiences of the institutions selected in the Great Colleges program.
“The institutions that the Great Colleges program recognizes provide innovative educational experiences — while also offering their employees outstanding workplace experiences — and we are eager to help readers learn more about them,” said Liz McMillen, editor of The Chronicle. “The selection process is rigorous and being named to the list is a tremendous accomplishment, but it also positions colleges and universities well to recruit the people that make them a success.”
