The Chronicle of Higher Education has selected TCU as one of 92 universities on its seventh annual “Great Colleges to Work For” list, and because it scored well in more than four categories, it was also named to the publication’s Honor Roll.

2014 marks the fourth consecutive year TCU has been recognized.

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of the ‘Great Colleges to Work For,’ ” said TCU Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. “TCU strives for excellence in all it does, and it is rewarding to be recognized for those efforts.”

This was TCU’s fourth time to participate in the survey, which groups institutions by enrollment size. TCU is in the medium category, with undergraduate population between 3,000 and 9,999.

The Chronicle of Higher Education surveyed a random sample of TCU employees who provided answers directly to the publication. Honorees were chosen based on responses to the survey and honored in one or more categories.

TCU was honored in 11 of the 12 categories including Collaborative Governance; Compensation & Benefits; Confidence in Senior Leadership; Facilities, Workspace & Security; Job Satisfaction; Professional/Career Development Programs; Respect & Appreciation; Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship; Teaching Environment (Faculty Only); Tenure Clarity & Process (Faculty Only/4-year only); Work/Life Balance.
