SAN DIMAS, CALIF - LIFE PACIFIC UNIVERITY IS A GREAT COLLEGE TO WORK FOR, ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY BY THE CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION, A TOP TRADE PUBLICATION FOR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES. 

Life Pacific University is, once again, named one of the best colleges in the nation to work for by The Great Colleges to Work For program.

The results, released in a special insert of the Chronicle are based on a survey of 236 colleges and universities. In all, 85 of the 236 institutions achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium, and large institutions, with Life Pacific University included among the small universities with 500 to 2,999 students.

Life Pacific University won honors in two categories this year:

  • Collaborative Governance: Faculty members are appropriately involved in decisions related to academic programs
  • Confidence in Senior Leadership: Leaders have the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience for institutional success.

“This affirmation of Life Pacific University is very pleasing, but our real goal is not recognition – it’s being a community that values the needs and contributions of every individual. Everyone at LPU adds to making this a great place to work. We are better together!” said Life Pacific President Angie Richey.

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 College Program website at www.greatcollegesprogram.com.
