LA MIRADA, CALIF. — Biola University is one of the nation’s 103 best colleges to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education. In its first year participating in the survey, Biola was also recognized a 2012 Honor Roll school — a distinction given to 10 institutions in each size cited most often across all of the recognition categories.
The results put Biola among 42 colleges in the nation — including just two schools in California and three schools in the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities — to make the Honor Roll.
The results, released today, in The Chronicle’s fifth annual report on The Academic Workplace, recognized Biola as excelling in the following:
“The institutions that the Great Colleges program recognizes provide innovative educational experiences — while also offering their employees outstanding workplace experiences,” said Liz McMillen, The Chronicle’s editor.
More than 46,000 employees at 294 colleges and universities participated in the survey.
The survey results 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. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.
Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with Biola University included among the 27 recognized medium universities with 3,000 to 9,999 students.
Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country.
