NYIT Named a “2010 Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education

Old Westbury, N.Y. (July 26, 2010) – New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) 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 third annual report on “The Academic Workplace,” are based on a survey of more than 42,000 employees at 277 colleges and universities in the United States.

Only 97 universities achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with NYIT included among the large universities (10,000 or more students). NYIT also received an outstanding rating in the category of compensation and benefits, in recognition for offering fair pay and benefits that meet the needs of its employees. In addition to highly competitive financial compensation, among the benefits NYIT offers to full-time employees are non-contributory health and dental insurance, tuition remission, flexible spending accounts, life insurance, and a generous paid time-off policy.

“At NYIT, we strive for a work environment that is creative, collaborative, safe and comfortable, and cutting edge,” said NYIT President Edward Guiliano. “We are pleased to receive recognition from The Chronicle. The well-being of our employees is fundamental to the well-being of our institution, which is why we are constantly strengthening our programs to meet the needs of employees and their families while remaining focused on being a student-centered university.”

The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies and a survey administered to a random sample of faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.

“With the Great Colleges program, The Chronicle can provide even more of the vital information our readers rely on – unbiased reporting on which colleges are being innovative in their workplace practices,” said Jeffrey J. Selingo, editor of The Chronicle.

Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. For more information and to view all the results of the survey, visit The Chronicle’s website at http://chronicle.com/academicworkplace.
