For the sixth consecutive year, Baylor University has attained elite Honor Roll status as a 2016 Great College to Work For, according to a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education, a top trade publication for colleges and universities.
The results, released July 18 in The Chronicle's ninth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of 281 colleges and universities.
Only 93 institutions achieved Great College to Work For recognition, with 42 named to the Honor Roll as the standouts in their size categories. Baylor is included in the large university category with 10,000 or more students.
"Nine years in, The Chronicle's Great Colleges to Work For program is well known as a mark of a college or university that puts thought and effort into serving the needs of its faculty and staff," said Liz McMillen, editor of The Chronicle. "The colleges and universities that make the list are highly rated by their employees for creating great working environments, an important achievement that helps them recruit top academic and administrative talent."
The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff. Employee feedback is the primary factor in deciding whether or not an institution received recognition.
