Kent State Earns Place on "Great Colleges to Work For" List
Kent State continues to amass honors for its welcoming workplace.
The Chronicle of Higher Education has released its 2009 “Great Colleges to Work For” list. Kent State was named among 150 colleges which earned a place on that roster. The program recognizes small groups of colleges (based on enrollment size) for specific best practices and policies.
“Kent State has always been a great place to work because the benefits package has been good,” says Dr. Timothy J. Chandler, senior associate provost. “And given the current economic climate, we are particularly fortunate to be working for an institution that is doing everything it can to maintain those benefits.”
There are 26 categories for four-year institutions. In a new feature in this year’s program, the “Honor Roll” highlights the top 10 colleges in each size category. Kent State made the top 10 in the category of Tuition Reimbursement for schools of 10,000 or more students.
More than 300 four- and two-year colleges signed up for this year’s program, and 247 went through the entire survey process this spring. The results are based on responses from nearly 41,000 administrators, faculty members and staff members at those institutions.
