Looking for a new job? Apparently, Texas Lutheran University is the place to apply.

“For the fifth consecutive year, TLU is one of the nation’s great colleges to work for according to a survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education,” a Tuesday online TLU article said. “The results were released in The Chronicle’s ninth annual report on The Academic Workplace.”

TLU was among 93 out of 281 universities surveyed to be recognized as a “Great College to Work For.”

“Our campus culture is one of our most important assets,” TLU President Dr. Stuart Dorsey said. “To be recognized by The Chronicle for a fifth consecutive year is not only an extraordinary accolade, it’s representative of the dedication and commitment of our faculty and staff. TLU is a great place to work because of them and all they do for the university.”

The school said results are based on a two-part assessment process that includes “an institutional audit of demographics and workplace policies from each university, as well as a survey administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff.”

“The primary factor in deciding whether a college received the Great College title was employee feedback,” TLU said. “The university received honors in collaborative governance, confidence in senior leadership, teaching environment and tenure clarity and process.”

The Chronicle, a source of news about colleges and universities, honors the institutions selected in the Great Colleges program for having an outstanding workplace and innovative educational experiences.

“The institutions that the Great Colleges program recognizes provide innovative educational experiences — while also offering their employees outstanding workplace experiences — and we are eager to help readers learn more about them,” The Chronicle editor Liz McMillen said. “The selection process is rigorous and being named to the list is a tremendous accomplishment, but it also positions colleges and universities well to recruit the people that make them a success.”
