DWU named 2014 Great College to Work by higher education survey

MITCHELL, S.D. - Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The results, released today in The Chronicle's seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees at 278 colleges and universities.

In all, only 92 of the 278 institutions achieved "Great College to Work" status among large and small institutions.

DWU was included among the small universities, with 2,999 students or fewer -- DWU's enrollment for 2013-14 was 883.

DWU won honors in three categories this year, including facilities, workspace and security, and supervisor/department chair relationship.

"Being recognized by The Chronicle in this way affirms our belief that Dakota Wesleyan is a special and unique place to both learn and work," said Amy Novak, DWU president.
