The results, released recently in a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education, are based on a survey of 221 colleges and universities. In all, 79 of the 221 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies.
The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institution questionnaire that captured employment data and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.
Fletcher won honors in the following categories:
- Professional/Career Development Programs
- Work/Life Balance
“We are honored to have been selected as a Great College to Work For,” commented Fletcher Chancellor Dr. Kristine Strickland. “This national recognition is an honor not only for Fletcher but for our entire community. I am happy that our faculty and staff can truly enjoy not only where they work, but also the mission we get to live out every day in service to our community.”
The Great Colleges to Work For® program is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country.
