SUNY DELHI IS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

SUNY Delhi has been named a "Great College to Work For" by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

July 13 , 2009 , Delhi, N.Y. … The Chronicle's Great Colleges to Work For program recognizes small groups of colleges (based on enrollment size) for specific best practices and policies, such as compensation and benefits, faculty-administration relations, and confidence in senior leadership. SUNY Delhi was recognized among four-year colleges with enrollments of up to 2,999 students. The results of the second annual survey were announced on July 6 in a special supplement of The Chronicle, http://chronicle.com/indepth/academicworkplace, and have been published in the July 10 print edition of the publication.

"We've always said that it is our faculty and staff that make SUNY Delhi distinctive, and we are proud they are being recognized at the national level," says Bonnie Martin, director of administrative services. "We have recruited extremely talented faculty and staff in recent years, and this honor should make the college and our community even more attractive," she adds.

The Great Colleges to Work For program allows the Chronicle "to provide more information to job seekers about the colleges that are the leading innovators when it comes to providing a rewarding work environment," says Jeffrey J. Selingo, the editor of The Chronicle of Higher Education. More than 300 four‐ and two‐year colleges signed up for this year's program and 247 went through the entire survey process this spring. That's nearly triple last year's number of participants. The results are based on responses from nearly 41,000 administrators, faculty members, and staff members at those institutions.
