Roberts Wesleyan makes Chronicle of Higher Education list

The Chronicle of Higher Education has released its 2015 Great Colleges to Work For list, and Roberts Wesleyan College is one of the few New York schools to make it, officials announced Monday.

A total of 86 of the 281 colleges that applied were selected to be recognized. They were chosen based on feedback provided from surveys submitted to faculty, administrators and professional support staff. The primary deciding factor was employee feedback, officials said.

Roberts Wesleyan College was recognized in four categories:

  • collaborative governance;
  • confidence in senior leadership;
  • facilities, workspace and security; and
  • supervisor/department chair relationships.

“We are grateful to be honored and represented on this prestigious list,” said Deana Porterfield, president of Roberts Wesleyan College and Northeastern Seminary. “Though we always have areas for improvement, this recognition acknowledges our hard work and commitment to developing a thriving community committed to educating our students.”

The other New York schools on the list are New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, Seneca County; Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island; Nyack College in New York City, and SUNY College at Delhi in Delaware County.

In was the New York Chiropractic College’s seventh consecutive year for this honor, college officials said.
