Now in its ninth year, the Great Colleges to Work For® program continues to provide vital data about employee engagement at colleges and universities across the United States. The partnership between The Chronicle of Higher Education and ModernThink LLC has been bringing higher educational leaders valuable insights into fundamental workplace qualities since 2008. This year, 281 institutions took part in the program which surveys faculty and staff to determine the key factors that distinguish great colleges. Of those participants, 93 achieved acknowledgment in one or more of 12 recognition categories, reflecting essential themes of great workplaces such as Shared Governance and Senior Leadership. Discover more about our data and what makes a college or university a great place to work in this year’s supplemental article in the Chronicle of Higher Education publication. If your institution missed the opportunity to survey this spring, connect with us now to learn more about the 2017 program, other survey options, and ways to leverage our survey and benchmarking at or 302-764-4477.

One thought on “2016 Great Colleges Announced!


    I have worked at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida, for the past 29 years and there is not a day that goes by that I don’t feel like the luckiest personal alive. The people and students that I work with and the beautiful campus make working for SEU a joy.
