UAB among Great Colleges to Work For

As part of the Campus Engagement Survey, the Great Colleges to Work For® program compares survey results from participating institutions to recognize colleges that get top employee ratings regarding workplace practices and policies.

This was UAB’s first year to be recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to the Great Colleges to Work For® program.

The results, released September 15, 2023, via a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education and at GreatCollegesList.com, are based on a survey of 194 colleges and universities. In all, 72 of those institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies.

UAB was recognized in four categories this year:

  • Shared Governance
  • Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging
  • Confidence in Senior Leadership
  • Faculty Experience
