Marywood Named a 2011 Great College to Work For
Published on Mon, July 25, 2011
Marywood University is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.
The results, released today in The Chronicle's fourth annual report on "The Academic Workplace," are based on a survey of nearly 44,000 employees at 310 colleges and universities.
In all, only 111 of the 310 institutions achieved "Great Colleges to Work For" recognition, with Marywood University earning this accolade for the second consecutive year.
Marywood won honors in five categories this year:
- Respect and Appreciation
- Teaching Environment
- Collaborative Governance
- Confidence in Senior Leadership
- Professional/Career Development Programs
Along with this impressive showing, Marywood University was named to the Honor Roll for earning the most recognitions in its size category—1 of only 42 institutions nationwide to merit that honor.
"The second consecutive recognition from The Chronicle is a distinctive honor that affirms the values we embrace and demonstrate each day at Marywood," said Sister Anne Munley, IHM, Ph.D., Marywood University President. "Our most precious asset is our people. This is a great place to work because of the outstanding administrators, faculty, and staff, who are deeply committed to making the Marywood educational experience the best that it can be for our students. Together, we move the mission of the University forward in a welcoming and supportive environment."
The Chronicle is the nation's most important source of news about colleges and universities.
"With the Great Colleges program, The Chronicle can provide even more vital information our readers rely on—unbiased reporting on which colleges are being innovative in their workplace practices," said Jeffrey Selingo, The Chronicle's editor. "Given how competitive the Great Colleges program was this year, this accolade is a remarkable accomplishment."
