Queens University of Charlotte named ‘Great College to Work For’ by the Chronicle of Higher Education
'Best Colleges to Work For' program recognizes values including teaching environment and confidence in leadership
Queens University of Charlotte has earned top national honors as a "Great College to Work For" by the Chronicle of Higher Education.
"We are blessed with tremendously talented and dedicated faculty and staff, and are honored to be recognized as a great place to work toward providing transformative experiences for students," said Queens President Pamela Davies.
Each year the Chronicle recognizes a small group of colleges and universities for best practices regarding employment, by conducting an institutional audit and survey of faculty and staff administered by ModernThink LLC. The primary factor considered is employee feedback.
The 2010 program results were announced on July 26 by the Chronicle. It surveyed employees at 277 schools nationwide and chose Queens among 97 that received the "Great Colleges to Work For" designation.
Queens also is one of only 39 institutions named to the program's Honor Roll for earning the most category honors among peer institutions according to size.
Previously, Queens was recognized by The Charlotte Business Journal in its 2009 "Best Places to Work" ranking program.
Queens earned recognition from the Chronicle of Higher Education for:
Faculty members say the institution recognizes innovative and high-quality teaching.

Confidence in Senior Leadership
