The Methodist College of Nursing (MCON) has been selected as one of 2009’s Great Colleges to Work For. Methodist College of Nursing is one of 150 schools recognized in The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2009 Great Colleges to Work For program.
The Chronicle’s Great Colleges to Work For program recognizes groups of colleges based on their enrollment size for specific best practices and policies, such as compensation and benefits, faculty-administration relations, and confidence in senior leadership. There are 26 recognition categories for four-year institutions. Results are based on responses from nearly 41,000 administrators, faculty members, and staff members at the various educational institutions.
The Great Colleges survey included a two-part assessment process: a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional-support staff and an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies and practices from each institution. The primary factors in deciding whether a college received recognition was the employee feedback collected from the faculty and staff.
Dr. Kimberly Johnston, President of Methodist College of Nursing, said, “We strive to make MCON an exceptional place to work. We believe strongly in engaging faculty and staff in all aspects of the institution to create a vibrant and rewarding educational workplace."
The full listing will appear in the July 10th print issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education.
