LCU Recognized as Honor Roll Institution for Chronicle's Great Colleges to Work For

Lubbock Christian University was featured on The Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of Great Colleges to Work For (GCWF) for 10 categories in 2018. LCU was also named to the honor roll of recognized institutions.

“We are thankful to be included on the Chronicle of Higher Education’s honor roll of great college workplaces,” said President Tim Perrin. “This recognition is a tribute to LCU’s extraordinary faculty and staff who make this a great place to work through their collegial spirit and shared sense of mission. We look toward the future with confidence.”

According to the Chronicle of Higher Education’s website, the GCWF program annually conducts surveys to determine essential qualities of a college workspace. In this, its eleventh year, the program surveyed 253 institutions – 84 of which were recognized and 42 of which made the honor roll. Over 53,000 people sent survey responses that influenced the results.

“Lubbock Christian University seeks to be authentically Christian in everything we do,” said Raymond Richardson, vice president for university advancement. “As an employee, to me this means pouring into the students that find their way to LCU, treating coworkers with grace and humility, working hard as for the LORD, and not allowing work to just pass by but seeking how God can use each of us in a unique and divine way.”

LCU was recognized in 10 of the 12 categories the GCWF acknowledges, receiving excellent ratings in at least six categories to also be recognized on the honor roll:

  • Collaborative Governance
  • Confidence in Senior Leadership
  • Facilities, Workspace, and Security
  • Job Satisfaction
  • Professional/Career Development
  • Respect and Appreciation
  • Supervisor/Department Chair Relationship
  • Teaching Environment (Faculty)
  • Tenure Clarity & Process (Faculty)
  • Work/Life Balance

“Lubbock Christian University is an incredible place to work and it is because of the hearts of the students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community that make this so rewarding every morning I come to work,” said Richardson.

LCU continues to devote itself to transforming lives and continually improving as an institution for faculty, staff, and students alike to work and learn. To learn more about the various awards LCU has received, visit the awards page.
