Abilene Christian University is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to the latest survey by the Great Colleges to Work For program. This marks the 14th time ACU has been recognized in the last 15 years and the fourth consecutive year for ACU to receive the Honor Roll designation.
The 2023 Great Colleges to Work For results, which will be published in the Sept. 15 issue of the The Chronicle of Higher Education, are based on an annual survey of a random selection of administrators, faculty members and professional support staff members at colleges and universities in the U.S. who are asked to evaluate their employer on various qualities and characteristics. Only 72 institutions were recognized as a Great College to Work For.
For the fourth year in a row and the fifth time in the last decade, ACU is also among just 42 institutions nationwide named to the Honor Roll for achievements in six out of 10 possible categories:
- Job Satisfaction and Support
- Professional Development
- Mission and Pride
- Supervisor/Department Chair Effectiveness
- Confidence in Senior Leadership
- Faculty and Staff Well-being
The Honor Roll highlights the top institutions in each size category cited most often across all of the recognition categories. ACU is cited in the 3,000-9,999 students category.
“The high quality experience that our students enjoy is a direct result of the commitment, excellence and shared purpose of our faculty and staff. Every day, I am fortunate to see that first-hand,” said Dr. Phil Schubert, ACU president. “Our board and administration continue to be committed to creating and maintaining a workplace culture that honors and supports employees.”
