Roberts Wesleyan named Great College to Work For

Roberts Wesleyan College has been named to The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2017 list of Great Colleges to Work For for the third consecutive year, officials said.

The list has been cultivated for a decade.

“What an honor and blessing to be part of this impressive list yet again for the third year in a row,” said Deana Porterfield, president of Roberts Wesleyan College, in a statement. “We strive to provide an engaged campus culture that is God-honoring and has a positive impact in the lives of our students. Our employees are what make Roberts a unique community. This recognition allows us the opportunity to celebrate the great work happening at Roberts Wesleyan College.”

The list has 79 colleges across the country, selected from 232 applicants.

Roberts Wesleyan College was recognized in eight categories for the honor.

Roberts Wesleyan was also one of 42 institutions to receive the “Honor Roll” designation for stand-out universities based on size, officials said.

“Ten years in, the Great Colleges to Work For distinction is well-known by academic jobseekers as a sign that an institution’s employees are valued and given opportunities for growth even when they face financial constraints,” said Liz McMillen, editor of The Chronicle in a statement. “Any college or university that’s on the list is showing that they emphasize one of their most valuable assets: their faculty and staff.”
