For the third consecutive year, Frontier Nursing University (FNU) has been named one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to the Great Colleges to Work For® program. The results, released today in a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education, are based on a survey of 194 colleges and universities. In all, 72 of those institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with FNU included among the small universities with 500 to 2,999 students and more than 250 employees.
“To be identified as a Great College to Work For again this year is a wonderful honor,” said FNU President Dr. Susan Stone, DNSc, CNM, FACNM, FAAN. “This designation is so meaningful to us because it is based on data and information collected from our faculty and staff, whose responses verify that we have established a proven culture of caring, fairness, and belonging. In turn, that allows Frontier to perform at the highest level in service to our students and our mission.”
The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institution questionnaire that captures employment data 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 employee feedback. The Great Colleges to Work For® program is one of the largest and most respected workplace recognition programs in the country.

ModernThink, a strategic human capital consulting firm, administered the survey and analyzed the results.
