Mitchell Technical Institute has once again been named a “Great College to Work For®,” according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
This is the second consecutive year that MTI has been recognized. This year, MTI was cited for honors in two categories: confidence in senior leadership and facilities, workspace and security. Only 92 institutions of the 278 participating earned recognition.
MTI president Greg Von Wald was very pleased with the honor. “The culture of MTI is what makes it great. This team genuinely cares for each other and celebrates and supports each other. They take pride in the institution, share the accomplishments of others, and are quick to recognize the achievements of peers. Their professionalism in accomplishing their mission at exceptionally high levels of performance makes this one of the most enjoyable places I have had the pleasure to lead.”
MTI’s nomination as a “Great College to Work For” is just one of many recognitions it has received recently including its third consecutive nomination to the Aspen Institute’s Top 150 two-year colleges ranking.
The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.
To administer the survey and analyze the results, The Chronicle worked with ModernThink LLC, a consulting firm that has conducted numerous “Best Places to Work” programs, surveying hundreds of thousands of employees nationwide.
The results, released recently in The Chronicle’s seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees. Great Colleges to Work For® is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. The survey can be viewed in its entirety on The Chronicle’s website.
