Dear Marietta College Community:

Congratulations to you — our employees — for once again making Marietta College such a fun and amazing place to work every day. It is also why I am proud to share with you today that for the fourth consecutive year, Marietta College has been named a “Great College to Work For,” according to a new survey by The Great Colleges to Work For program.

Marietta College claimed honors in two of the 10 categories that are evaluated. We received honors in the following:

  • Shared Governance 
  • Faculty Experience

The results, released today in a special insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education, are based on a survey of 196 colleges and universities. In all, only 70 of the 196 institutions who participated in the program achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition for specific best practices and policies.

The recognition of Marietta, being one of the “Great Colleges to Work For” in the country is a testament to the dedication and passion for excellence of our 400-plus talented faculty and staff. We are always pleased to receive such recognition, however, the ongoing contributions by our community to make Marietta College an amazing place for our students is what we truly celebrate.

Any college or university that earns a spot on the list shows that they emphasize one of their most valuable assets: their people (faculty, staff and students).

“Great Colleges to Work For” is one of the largest and most comprehensive workplace studies in higher education. I congratulate all of you for helping us continue to make a positive shift in our campus culture and I want you to know that everyone at Marietta College has helped make this a great place to work and learn.

Congratulations and thank you!!

Bring Forth a Pioneer!
