Press Release

July 30, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Fort Morgan, CO. 07/30/14.  Recently the Chronicle of Higher Education published the results of the Great Colleges to Work For GraphicGreat Colleges to Work For® program.  For the fourth consecutive year, Morgan Community College (MCC) is the only institution of higher education in Colorado to receive this recognition, and is one of four colleges of its size to have received the special honor roll designation with high scores in 8 out of 11 categories. 

This year MCC ranks #2, for a college of its size, within the honor roll status in the following eight categories:

  • Collaborative Governance
  • Compensation and Benefits
  • Confidence in Senior Leadership
  • Facilities, Workspace & Security
  • Job Satisfaction
  • Respect and Appreciation
  • Teaching Environment
  • Work/Life Balance

The results in The Chronicle’s seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees at 278 colleges and universities.

Great Colleges to Work For® is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with MCC included among the small institutions with 2,999 students or fewer. In all, only 92 of the 278 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For®” recognition for specific best practices and policies.

“The ‘Great College’ designation is simply a reflection of the great people that is synonymous with MCC,” states MCC President Dr. Kerry Hart. “Indeed, the most meaningful personal reward of this national recognition is the daily humbling realization of the honor I have to be associated with each of my co-workers.”   

“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,” said Liz McMillen, The Chronicle’s editor.

The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.

To administer the survey and analyze the results, The Chronicle worked with ModernThink LLC, a strategic human capital consulting firm that has conducted numerous “Best Places to Work” programs, surveying hundreds of thousands of employees nationwide.
