Baylor honored among nation’s ‘Great Colleges To Work For’ for 8th straight year
For the eighth consecutive year, Baylor University has been named one of the country’s “Great Colleges to Work For” following a nationwide survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.
What’s more — Baylor is 1 of just 10 large four-year universities nationwide to earn elite Honor Roll status in the survey. This marks Baylor’s seventh Honor Roll appearance in recent years.
The Chronicle’s annual study — the largest and most comprehensive workplace survey in higher education — looked at more than 250 colleges and universities nationwide, interviewing more than 50,000 faculty and staff members across the country. In tabulating results of the survey, the Chronicle recognizes employee satisfaction in 12 different categories; Baylor was recognized for excellence in 11 of them, including confidence in leadership, teaching environment, work/life balance, and job satisfaction. Achieving recognition in 11 categories puts Baylor in rarified air in the “Great Colleges To Work For” survey; among large universities, only Illinois State joined Baylor in achieving the feat this year.
Faculty and staff are often overlooked when discussing the Baylor Family (compared to the more obvious students and alumni), so it’s great to know that our professors and other professionals are so happy to be part of the family, too!
Sic ’em, Bears!
