FORT WORTH, Texas – The Chronicle of Higher Education has again selected Texas Christian University as one of the top universities honored in its 2016 “Great Colleges to Work For” list. This is TCU’s sixth year to be recognized, and the university again earned recognition in all 12 areas of distinction, a feat no other university has achieved in two consecutive years.
Chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr. said, “This accomplishment is possible because of the award-winning educators, scholars and researchers who compose our faculty and our talented, dedicated and passionate staff members whose collaborative efforts within the community are unparalleled. Combine that with a dynamic student body and generous donor support, and there is much to celebrate.”
For the second consecutive year, TCU is the only college to be honored in all 12 categories, including Collaborative Governance; Compensation and Benefits; Confidence in Senior Leadership; Diversity; Facilities, Workspace and Security; Job Satisfaction; Professional/Career Development Programs; Respect and Appreciation; Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship; Teaching Environment (Faculty Only); Tenure Clarity and Process (Faculty Only/Four-year Only); and Work/Life Balance.
TCU, with a student population of more than 10,000, is one of the Top 100 Universities as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. TCU’s Board of Trustees is working to expand the University’s strategic plan, Vision in Action: The Academy of Tomorrow. The expanded vision focuses on key areas that will improve the academic profile of the University’s students, maintain a healthy national student enrollment and construct academic and residential facilities that support faculty, students and programs. One example of this is the collaboration between TCU and the University of North Texas Health Science Center to open a new M.D. school, anticipated for a fall 2018 opening.
