Clayton State University has been recognized as a place that puts its employees first. The University was named one of 79 higher education institutions across the nation in The Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of 2017 Great Colleges to Work For.
Clayton State was noted for its collaborative governance, respect and appreciation and work/life balance.
President Tim Hynes added, “For faculty, staff, and students alike, Clayton State projects a keen sense of place, what Allison Williams describes as ‘the emotional bonds that people form with places (at various geographic scales) over time and with familiarity with those places.’ Places for learning vary — the quiet of a walk near one of our six campus lakes or the daily bustle of the University Center Main Street. Place provides power and persistence for learning and work.”
The list was compiled through a survey delivered to more than 45,000 people at 232 schools this past spring. Colleges and universities were evaluated on institutional characteristics, individual evaluations from faculty and staff, and a statement from each college president about what makes their school a great place to work.
