EKU named great place to work

Eastern Kentucky University is one of 10 large universities in the United States, and the only one in Kentucky, to make the Honor Roll in the Chronicle of Higher Education's 2010 Great Colleges to Work For program.

The publication recognizes colleges and universities for best practices in areas such as compensation and benefits, work environment and institutional policies. Among four-year colleges and universities with enrollment of at least 10,000, EKU ranked in the top 10 nationally for professional/career development programs, teaching environment, work/life balance, confidence in senior leadership and tenure clarity and process.

The results are based on a survey of more than 42,000 employees at 277 colleges and universities.
