For the third year in a row, Eastern has made the list of "Great Colleges to Work For" released by The Chronicle of Higher Education. ModernThink LLC, an independent research company, surveyed 310 colleges and universities and more than 44,000 employees at those institutions to develop its findings. Only 111 colleges were awarded the distinction. The program is the second largest workplace recognition program in the country, after Fortune Magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" program.
In addition to being recognized as a "Great College to Work For," Eastern also was recognized in four categories this year: "Collaborative Governance"; "Compensation and Benefits"; Facilities, Workspaces and Security"; and "Confidence in Senior Leadership."
"We are honored to be included in 'Great Colleges to Work For' three years in a row," said Eastern President Elsa Núñez. "Receiving this national recognition from the Chronicle of Higher Education is very gratifying, especially being recognized in so many critical areas of campus interaction. The spirit of collaboration that exists on our campus gives us a heightened capacity to better serve our students and the State of Connecticut."
