TLU Named a Great College to Work For in Second Consecutive Year
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. These results, based on a survey of more than 44,688 employees at 300 colleges, are featured in The Chronicle’s sixth annual report on the Academic Workplace.
Only 97 of the 300 universities surveyed received “Great College to Work For” recognition in specific best practices and policies. In its second year of participation, TLU was also one of only 42 universities to earn the title of Honor Roll institution, winning honors in eight categories: collaborative governance, professional and career development programs, teaching environment, job satisfaction, confidence in senior leadership, supervisor and department chair relationship, respect and appreciation and tenure clarity and process.
“This is a high-profile recognition that will bring positive national attention to TLU,” said TLU President Stuart Dorsey. “It is a well-deserved tribute to the dedication and spirit of our faculty and staff, and builds upon the momentum of the university. A college that is a great place to work for is also a great environment for students.”
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. 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.
