Southern New Hampshire University was recognized in the recently completed “2012 Great Colleges to Work For” survey conducted by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

This is the fifth year in a row that SNHU has received this honor, and the second year SNHU is also designated as an Honor Roll recipient. The Honor Roll acknowledges those colleges and universities that scored consistently well across all 12 categories of best practices and policies. Southern New Hampshire University received recognition in multiple categories including:

  •     Collaborative Governance
  •     Compensation and Benefits
  •     Confidence in Senior Leadership
  •     Facilities, Workspace & Security
  •     Job Satisfaction
  •     Professional/Career-Development Programs
  •     Respect and Appreciation
  •     Supervisor or Department Chair Relationship
  •     Teaching Environment
  •     Work/Life Balance

The results, released in The Chronicle’s fifth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of nearly 47,000 employees at 294 institutions.

“We like to think that SNHU is one of the bright lights on the employment landscape here in Manchester and NH. Our growth is creating scores of good paying jobs and opportunity,” said SNHU President Paul LeBlanc. “Yet salary is only part of the picture and what is gratifying about being named to the Honor Roll yet again is the recognition of things like our tuition support, staff mini-grants, and robust medical and dental plans. Our mission is to improve the lives of students, but we carry that ethos to our employees and their families as well.”

The Chronicle is the nation’s most important source of news about colleges and universities. “With the Great Colleges program, The Chronicle can provide even more of the vital information our readers rely on – unbiased reporting on which colleges are being innovative in their workplace practices.” said Chronicle Editor Jeffrey J. Selingo.
