For the sixth 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 Chronicle’s survey is the largest and most comprehensive workplace study in higher education, recognizing the colleges that get top ratings from their employees on workforce practices and policies.
Of those 232 institutions that participated, 79 were recognized as a 2017 “Great College to Work For” and only 42 were selected for the Honor Roll, including TLU. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with TLU included among the small universities with 2,999 students or fewer.
This year, TLU won honors in six categories including Collaborative Governance, Confidence in Senior Leadership, Professional/Career Development Programs, Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship, Teaching Environment (Faculty Only), and Tenure Clarity and Process (Faculty Only/4-year Only).
“TLU’s consistent presence on this prestigious list reflects one of our most valuable assets—a positive campus environment,” said TLU President Dr. Stuart Dorsey. “TLU faculty and staff love working here because they know they are making a difference in students’ lives. A great place to work makes for a great student experience.”
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.
“Ten years in, the Great Colleges to Work For distinction is well-known by academic jobseekers as a sign that an institution’s employees are valued and given opportunities for growth even when they face financial constraints,” said Liz McMillen, editor of The Chronicle. “Any college or university that’s on the list is showing that they emphasize one of their most valuable assets: their faculty and staff.”
