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 for the second consecutive year.
The results were released today at GreatCollegesList.com. The results will also be distributed on September 16, 2022, via a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education. The results are based on a survey of 212 colleges and universities. In all, 68 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.
As was the case in 2021, Frontier was identified as a workplace that excels in all ten categories:
- Job Satisfaction & Support
- Compensation & Benefits
- Professional Development
- Mission & Pride
- Supervisor/Department Chair Effectiveness
- Confidence in Senior Leadership
- Faculty & Staff Well-being
- Shared Governance
- Faculty Experience
- Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
By excelling in all 10 categories, FNU, which has over 250 employees, was also named to the Great Colleges Honor Roll. The Honor Roll status is granted to the 42 colleges each year that are highlighted most across the recognition categories.
“It is a tremendous honor to be named a Great College to Work For again this year,” said FNU President Dr. Susan Stone. “This matters to us not because of the award itself but because of what it says about our university. We pride ourselves on creating and maintaining a culture of caring in which all employees are valued and respected. We want our employees to be proud of the work they do and to be empowered to use their talents to serve our students and advance our mission.”
The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institution questionnaire that captured 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.
