Duke University has been named a “Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education.
It was the ninth time in 10 years that Duke has made the Chronicle’s list of good campus workplaces. Out of 232 colleges that participated in surveys for the ranking, 79 received the Chronicle’s “Great College to Work For” designation.
The ranking, released Monday, is based on a two-step process that includes an audit on policies and demographics and a survey of faculty, administrators and staff. The Chronicle survey was conducted by ModernThink LLC, a firm that specializes in workplace satisfaction studies.
Duke performed well in two categories of a dozen measured by the ranking: compensation and benefits; and facilities, workspaces and security.
Duke University and its health system have more than 37,000 employees.
