TLU Named a 2014 “Great College to Work For”
July 21, 2014
Texas Lutheran University is again one of the nation’s great colleges to work for according to a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The results, released today in The Chronicle's seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees at 278 colleges and universities.
In all, only 92 of the 278 institutions achieved "Great College 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.
In its third year of participation, TLU was also one of only 42 universities to earn the title of Honor Roll winning honors in collaborative governance, confidence in senior leadership, professional/career development programs, supervisor/department chair relationship, teaching environment, and tenure clarity and process.
“At TLU, we’ve known for quite some time that a great place to work is also a great environment for our students,” said TLU President Dr. Stuart Dorsey. “Our campus culture is one of our most important assets. To be recognized for a third consecutive year by The Chronicle is further testament to the dedication and spirit of our faculty and staff.”
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 Chronicle’s Great Colleges program provides readers with important information about the colleges and institutions we cover,” said Liz McMillen, editor of The Chronicle of Higher Education. “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.”
Survey 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.
