Two South Florida institutions are on the latest list of Great Colleges to Work For, an annual survey published by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Miami Dade College and Lynn University in Boca Raton were among 92 colleges that made the full list; both were also named to the honor roll, which features the “best of the best.”

The survey is based on responses from more than 43,000 employees and examines 12 categories: 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; tenure clarity and process; and work-life balance.

MDC was recognized in every category but compensation and benefits (and, as a two-year college, was not evaluated in tenure). Lynn University earned recognition in eight categories.
