Lasell College Named a “2011 Great College to Work For”

August 11, 2011

Lasell College has been named one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The results, released today in The Chronicle's fourth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of nearly 44,000 employees at 310 colleges and universities.

In all, only 111 of the 310 institutions achieved "Great College to Work For" recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with Lasell included among the small colleges with 2,999 or fewer students.

This year marks the third year in a row Lasell has received this recognition.

Lasell was honored in three categories this year:
* Professional/Career Development Programs,
* Work/Life Balance, and
* Respect and Appreciation.

"This award illustrates the strength of Lasell's values. Lasell's faculty, staff and students work together to make the College a great place to work and learn. We are thrilled to be honored again this year," said Lasell College President Michael B. Alexander.

The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics 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 the employee feedback.

The Chronicle worked with ModernThink LLC, a strategic human capital consulting firm to administer the survey and analyze the results. For more information and to view all the results of the survey, visit The Chronicle's Web site at http://chronicle.com/academicworkplace

Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
