From Diverse Issues In Higher Education

The University of Vermont and the University of West Georgia are among the 2017 Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs, making them the only schools designated as such for each of the four years the report has been in existence.

The complete findings, to be published in the March 23 edition of Diverse: Issues In Higher Educations, are the result of a partnership with the Center for Higher Education Enterprise (CHEE) at The Ohio State University and the American College Personnel Association (ACPA)—College Student Educators International.

With a focus on workplace diversity, staffing practices and the work environment, the CHEE research team used a web-based survey approach to examine categories such as family friendliness, salary/benefits, and professional development opportunities.

Corrections

In the Staff Profile table it was reported that Virginia Tech responded “No” to the “5% LGBT” survey item. Upon later review, it was realized that Virginia Tech had in fact responded with “No Response” as they do not collect this information. We sincerely regret the error.
