Rollins College is one of the best colleges in the nation to
work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education. This is the fourth
consecutive year Rollins has been recognized in The Chronicle’s annual
report on The Academic Workplace.
Rollins was also named to the 2012 Honor Roll for medium-sized institutions (3,000 to 9,999 students), which identifies four-year and two-year colleges that were rated highly in the most survey categories.
“It is gratifying that Rollins can provide a rewarding experience not only for our students but also for the College’s employees,” said Rollins President Lewis Duncan. “The dedication of our faculty and staff is sincerely appreciated.”
The Chronicle of Higher Education's Great Colleges to Work For rankings are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. More than 46,000 employees at 294 colleges and universities participated in the 2012 survey, which was free and open to all accredited institutions in the United States.
Of the participating institutions, only 103 institutions were recognized as Great Colleges, meaning they stood out in at least one of the 12 surveyed categories of best practices and policies. Rollins was recognized in seven categories including Compensation and Benefits, Job Satisfaction, Professional/Career-Development Programs, and Work/Life Balance.
Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. Find more information Rollins’ recognition and view all the results of the survey, visit The Chronicle’s website.
