The West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM), New York Institute of Technology (home to the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine) and Western University of Health Sciences (home to the WesternU/College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific) have been listed among The Chronicle of Higher Education’s “Great Colleges to Work For 2012.” The list is based on survey responses from nearly 47,000 college and university employees nationwide, who were asked to evaluate their colleges in 12 categories, including diversity, job satisfaction, compensation and benefits and others.
WVSOM received recognition in four categories: facilities, workspace and security, job satisfaction, respect and appreciation, and professional/career development programs. Western University of Health Sciences and New York Institute of Technology were both recognized for their compensation and benefits. The New York Institute of Technology and WVSOM also made the Chronicle’s 2011 list.
The Chronicle’s fifth annual survey gathered information in two parts: first, an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies; and second, a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff.
