Great College to Work ForCOLUMBUS, Miss. – The W has been named as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

 

Additionally, because The W was rated highly across all categories, it was one of only 42 institutions named to the 2013 Honor Roll.

The results were announced today by The Chronicle, and are based on a survey of more than 46,000 administrators, faculty members and professional support staff members at 300 participating institutions. Only 97 institutions achieved “Great Colleges to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies.

Employees rated The W highly enough in the following categories for the university to be designated as a 2013 Great College to Work For: Collaborative Governance, Professional/Career Development Programs, Teaching Environment, Job Satisfaction, Confidence in Senior Leadership, Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship, Respect and Appreciation and Tenure Clarity & Process.

Dr. Jim Borsig, The W’s president, said, “We are honored to receive this national recognition from The Chronicle. I credit our outstanding faculty and staff for the spirit they demonstrate to ensure we are providing the highest quality education to our students.”

Located in the heart of the Columbus historic district, The W accounts for 1,095 jobs with an economic impact of $40 million.

The Chronicle of Higher Education is the No. 1 source of news, information, and jobs for college and university faculty members and administrators. Based in Washington, D.C., The Chronicle has more than 70 writers, editors and international correspondents.
