MSU among '2013 Great Colleges to Work For'


Mississippi State University has been named one of the "2013 Great Colleges to Work For," according to an assessment released last week by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Only 97 postsecondary institutions were named to the "Great Colleges to Work For" list, and MSU was one of just 27 four-year universities with more than 10,000 students to receive the honor.

"We take great pride in our faculty, staff and administrators, and this recognition underscores the wonderful contributions of each and every one of them to the success of this university," said MSU President Mark E. Keenum. "Our successes in advancing the core mission of Mississippi State University are the direct result of these efforts to build and maintain a diverse, inclusive and innovative work environment."

The Chronicle's sixth annual report surveyed more than 44,000 employees at 300 colleges and universities. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback, and assessments also included workplace policies and institutional demographics.

"Great Colleges to Work For" is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the nation. For more information and to see all the survey results, visit
