Millersville University was recently given the distinction of being named a Great College to Work For, one of just 72 higher education institutions in the country to be given the title. The honor comes from the Great Colleges to Work For program, which collects data through an annual survey to determine the best higher ed employers in the United States.
The program was designed to both recognize colleges that create positive work environments and to understand further the factors that have the most influence on work culture in higher education. While part of the study includes an institutional profile detailing demographics, policies and practices of the institution, recognition was primarily gauged through feedback given by faculty and staff in the survey.
MU is one of 11 colleges in the Mid-East Region, consisting of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, to be given this distinction. Millersville is also the only school in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education to be named.
This is the second year that MU has been recognized, having previously been named in 2020. Out of the highlighted 2023 recognition categories, the University excelled in Compensation and benefits, Shared Governance; and Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging.
In a statement submitted by the University’s President, Dr. Daniel Wubah, he says, “The most important asset of any organization is its people. Our people make Millersville University a great place to work. Our students, faculty and staff embody our values of compassion, integrity, inclusion and professionalism. Our people are the key ingredient to seeing progress and meeting our mission. We have the power to ensure that every student who enters our university will thrive, have a transformational experience and leave our campus prepared to change the world.”
