Lone Star College named ‘2019 Great Colleges to Work For’


Lone Star College was named one of the 2019 Great Colleges to Work For® by the Chronicle of Higher Education for the third consecutive year.

“Lone Star College has worked very hard to encourage collaboration and nurture a culture that values and respects all employees,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC chancellor. “This effort leads to greater student success.”

Lone Star College also received special designation as an Honor Roll institution, one of only four two-year large colleges to be cited most often across all recognition categories.

The Chronicle of Higher Education, in partnership with ModernThink, LLC, gathers data directly from employees about what makes their institution a great place to work. The data collected provides senior-level administrators and academic leaders with insights on the quality of the workplace experience and the competitiveness of their policies and benefits.

The primary factor in deciding whether an institution receives recognition is the employee feedback.

LSC was recognized in 10 categories:

  • Collaborative Governance
  • Professional/Career Development Programs
  • Teaching Environment
  • Facilities, Workspace & Security
  • Job Satisfaction
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Confidence in Senior Leadership
  • Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship
  • Respect and Appreciation
  • Diversity

The Chronicle’s 2019 Great Colleges to Work For® survey is based on responses from 236 institutions comprised of 152 four-year colleges and 84 two-year colleges. In all, 85 institutions were recognized as 2019 Great Colleges to Work For®, including 60 four-year institutions and 25 two-year institutions. Only 42 institutions of higher education received the special Honor Roll designation, being recognized as standouts in their size categories.

The Great Colleges to Work For® is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country. For more information and to view all the results of the survey, visit the Great Colleges Program website at GreatCollegesProgram.com.
