In partnership with ModernThink LLC, the Chronicle of Higher Education gathered data from employees about what makes their institution a great place to work. According to a press release, the college was recognized in eight categories for two-year institutions including faculty & staff well-being, diversity, including and belonging and supervisor/department chair effectiveness. 

More than 200 schools, including 130 four-year universities and 82 two-year colleges, participated in the survey and only 68 were recognized as a 2022 Great Colleges to Work For®. This included 46 four-year universities and 22 two-year colleges.
