University of Montevallo named to The Chronicle of Higher Education list

MONTEVALLO—The University of Montevallo has recently been named to The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2013 Great Colleges to Work For® program. The program recognizes small groups of colleges (based on enrollment size) for specific best practices and policies.

Montevallo received recognition in both the Teaching Environment and Tenure Clarity and Process categories. The former is based on faculty members stating that the institution recognizes innovative and high-quality teaching. The latter is based on faculty indicating that requirements for tenure are clear.

The Chronicle partnered with ModernThink, a strategic human-capital consulting firm, to administer the survey and analyze the results. The Great Colleges® survey included a two-part assessment process: a survey administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff, as well as an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies and practices from each institution. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received a Great College to Work For® recognition was employee feedback.

Results analysis by ModernThink placed the University of Montevallo as one of 76 four-year institutions to be recognized from among 227 participants.

“We are extremely pleased with the University of Montevallo’s results in the recent Chronicle of Higher Education survey,” stated Dr. John W. Stewart III, president of UM. “Montevallo is not only a great place for our students, but for our dedicated faculty and staff, as well. This important recognition stands as an affirmation of the stalwart efforts of the entire Montevallo family.”

Published since 1966, The Chronicle of Higher Education provides the academic community with an independent, global hub for news, sophisticated analysis, opinion and engagement, and is read by more college and university faculty members and administrators than any other source in higher education. Now in its sixth year, the Great Colleges to Work For® program has become one of the largest and most-respected workplace-recognition programs in the country.
