USC Aiken Named Great Place to Work For
The University of South Carolina Aiken is a great college to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education, a top trade publication for colleges and universities.
The results, released in The Chronicle’s ninth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of 281 colleges and universities. Only 93 of the institutions that applied for the program achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with USC Aiken included among the medium universities with 3,000 to 9,999 students.
USC Aiken won honors in the collaborative governance category this year.
“I am extremely pleased and highly honored for USC Aiken to be selected as a Great College to Work For,” said USC Aiken Chancellor, Dr. Sandra Jordan. “I’m particularly proud that we received recognition in the area of collaborative governance. Whether we are working on new academic programs, the budget, or student initiatives, gathering input from all corners of the campus — faculty, staff, students, and alumni is of critical importance to making the best decisions possible.”
