Lindenwood Named ‘Great College to Work For’ for Fourth Time

August 24, 2012

Lindenwood University has been recognized for the fourth time in the annual “Great Colleges to Work For” report assembled by the Chronicle of Higher Education. The results of the study were released in the Chronicle’s fifth annual report on “The Academic Workplace” and were derived from a survey of more than 46,000 employees at 294 colleges and universities in the United States.


Lindenwood was recognized in the areas of collaborative governance and senior leadership. According to the survey, collaborative governance refers to the degree to which “faculty members are appropriately involved in decisions regarding academic programs,” and confidence in senior leadership indicates the level to which employees feel “the institution’s leaders have the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary for institutional success.”

The results were based on a two-part assessment that included an institutional audit of demographics and workplace policies and practices, as well as a survey of faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The employee survey was the primary factor in determining which institutions were recognized, according to the Chronicle.

Lindenwoood was also recognized as a Great College to Work For in 2008, 2010 and 2011. Lindenwood President James D. Evans, PhD, credited the school’s ongoing efforts to foster a professional environment of support and respect for garnering positive survey results.

“We are extremely pleased to have been cited for the fourth time in five years as being one of a select group of universities recognized by their employees as a great work environment,” he said. “I believe this recognition is a natural result of our collective devotion to a wonderful university mission and, of course, to an ethos that always places the students first.”
