For nine out of the past 10 years, ACU has been named a “Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Based on the responses of 53,000 people across 253 institutions, The Chronicle chose 84 four-year colleges that provide above-average work environments.
The assessment had two portions: a questionnaire about the institution characteristics and a faculty/staff questionnaire about their individual evaluations.
Both last year and this year, ACU was recognized in three categories:
- Facilities, Workspace and Security: Facilities meet employees’ needs, and the campus looks good.
- Supervisor or Department-Chair Relationship: Supervisors or chairs solicit ideas and make expectations clear.
- Work/Life Balance: Policies give employees flexibility to manage their lives on the job and at home.
President Dr. Phil Schubert said, “ACU’s faculty and staff are deeply dedicated to our mission to educate students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world. They passionately invest in students’ lives as they mentor, model and conduct research with them. Our faculty and staff are Christ-centered, display a restless pursuit of excellence, celebrate creativity and innovation, and receive every student as created in the image of God, destined for greatness according to who he’s called them to be.”
