Saint Leo University earns honors as great place to work

ST. LEO — Saint Leo University has been named one of the best colleges in the nation to work for in a new survey by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The results, released in the Chronicle's seventh annual report on the academic workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,500 employees at 278 colleges and universities.

Less than a third of the 278 institutions evaluated achieved "Great College to Work For" recognition. Results are reported for small, medium and large institutions, with Saint Leo University included among the large universities, those with 10,000 or more students.

Saint Leo University achieved honors in 10 categories this year: collaboration and governance; compensation and benefits; confidence in senior leadership; facilities, workspace, and security; job satisfaction; professional/career development programs; respect and appreciation; supervisor or department chair relationship; teaching environment; and tenure clarity and process.

Because Saint Leo University was rated highly in 10 of 12 categories, it was also named a 2014 Honor Roll institution, a designation granted to 42 of the colleges surveyed. This is the second consecutive year that Saint Leo has earned that distinction.

  3. Trigaux: Tampa Bay household income tops $50,000 but still makes us look poor

    Personal Finance

    The good news is Tampa Bay's median household income finally crawled above $50,000 last year. The bad news is that figure — officially $51,115 by new U.S. Census Bureau data — still puts the Tampa Bay region as the poorest of the nation's 25 largest metro areas.
