Jefferson State is one of only 18 community colleges recognized in the United States for this honor and the only college or university recognized in Alabama.

The Chronicle’s Great Colleges to Work For 2016 survey is based on responses from more than 46,000 people at 281 colleges and universities. All accredited institutions in the United States with an enrollment of at least 500 were invited to participate in the survey.

“We are proud to be recognized again among the best places to work in higher education,” said Jefferson State Interim President Keith Brown. “The Great College to Work For recognition helps highlight both the collaborative environment at our college and the dedication of our faculty and staff to serve our students and our community.”

The assessment included a questionnaire about institutional characteristics and a faculty/staff questionnaire about individuals’ evaluations of their institutions. The assessment also included an analysis of demographic data and workplace policies, including benefits, at each participating college.

Great Colleges to Work For is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. For more information and to view all the results of the survey, visit The Chronicle’s website at
