Rollins Named a “Great College to Work For”

For the fifth consecutive year, Rollins is named a “Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Rollins College is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.  This is the fifth consecutive year Rollins has been recognized in The Chronicle’s annual report on The Academic Workplace.

Rollins was also named to the 2013 Honor Roll for medium-sized institutions (3,000 to 9,999 students), which identifies 10 institutions in each size that were cited most often across all of the recognition categories.

“It is an honor to be part of a community that brings the spirit of service excellence to work every day,” said Rollins President Lewis Duncan. “Our employees’ commitment to being responsive, respectful, collaborative, and competent is reflected in the quality of life on campus for everyone.”

The Chronicle of Higher Education's Great Colleges to Work For rankings are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. More than 45,000 employees at 300 colleges and universities participated in the 2013 survey, which was free and open to all accredited institutions in the United States.

Of the participating institutions, only 97 institutions were recognized as Great Colleges, meaning they stood out in at least one of the 12 surveyed categories of best practices and policies.

Rollins was recognized in seven categories:
Compensation and Benefits
Facilities, Workspace, and Security
Job Satisfaction
Professional/Career-Development Programs
Supervisor or Department-Chair Relationship
Tenure Clarity & Process
Work/Life Balance

Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. Find more information Rollins’ recognition and view all the results of the survey, visit The Chronicle’s website at http://chronicle.com/section/Academic-Workplace-2013/729/.
