Chronicle of Higher Ed thinks Georgetown is a “Great College to Work For”

On Monday, The Chronicle of Higher Education released the results of its annual “Great Colleges to Work For” study. Lo and behold, Georgetown is among the best in the nation.

The Chronicle focuses on the University’s “many amenities,” specifically mentioning its pharmacy and child-care services, as well as the “major benefits” of working in Washington, D.C.

“We are proud of the innovative ways our faculty teach and encourage student learning, and this recognition reflects our efforts to support these important initiatives,” President John DeGioia said in a press release. “We will continue our efforts, not only to enhance teaching innovations on campus, but also to enrich the work experience for all our staff and faculty members.”

During its year-long study, the Chronicle assessed workplace policies and surveyed more than 600 University faculty, administrative, and staff employees.

This isn’t Georgetown’s first employer accolade of the month, either. In early July, the Scientist named Georgetown as the 27th-best place to work in academia, due to high marks in “job satisfaction.”

    Sorry to go copy on you lot but it’s actually “Lo and Behold,” not “Low and Behold.”

    “The Chronicle focuses on the University’s “many amenities,” specifically mentioning its pharmacy and child-care services…”

    Like including birth control in the faculty insurance policy?

    I’m pretty sure the pharmacy is at the hospital, so it really shouldn’t be counted as something that makes the University great. And, seriously, a pharmacy? Sounds like respondents were grasping to find something good to say.
