• Baylor among nation’s ‘Great Colleges to Work For’ for 3rd time in 4 years

    Great Colleges to Work For 2012 Honor RollYou know Baylor is a great school to attend, and a great family (full of good advice) to belong to as an alum. But did you know it’s just as good a place to work?

    For the second year in a row, Baylor is among an elite group of just 30 large four-year schools awarded honor roll status by The Chronicle of Higher Education in their annual “Great Colleges to Work For” survey. This year, the Chronicle surveyed more than 46,000 employees across nearly 300 schools; Baylor was named to the honor roll alongside such universities as Michigan and Notre Dame.

    The Chronicle bases its selections on how college and universities fare in 12 categories; Baylor was recognized for its excellence in 11 of the 12 areas, one of just two schools to be so highly regarded. BU was specifically applauded for helping professors balance researching and teaching loads and for perks given employees and their families, such as discounted meals in the dining halls and access to Baylor fitness facilities and sporting events. BU has now been recognized by the Chronicle three of the last four years.

    Faculty and staff are obviously important parts of the university, so we’re glad to hear that they are happy members of the Baylor family!

    Sic ’em, Bears!
