Back in 2008, The Chronicle of Higher Education
and ModernThink LLC partnered to create the Great Colleges to Work For
program. The top goal was to conduct research that would help leaders
understand and leverage the key success factors that differentiate great
places to work in academe. In 2015 the program attracted 281
institutional applicants from across the country.
Out of all of the applicants this year, 86 colleges and universities
were highlighted in one or more of 12 recognition categories. Each
category represents a key driver of workplace quality (e.g.,
Collaborative Governance, Senior Leadership, Job Satisfaction, etc.).
Forty-two of those 86 recognized colleges received accolades in multiple
categories, thereby distinguishing themselves as the best of the best
and earning a spot on the Honor Roll.
