Daemen Receives National Distinction As a ‘Great College to Work For’

Daemen College has been named to The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2014 Honor Roll as a “Great College to Work For,” an elite distinction that places the college as one of the top 10 small four-year institutions to work for in the nation. This marks the first time Daemen has been selected for this distinguished workplace recognition as one of the best colleges in the United States.

“The fact that Daemen has been named one of the nation’s top 10 small four-year colleges to work for is a tribute to our devoted faculty and staff, who together make Daemen a remarkably collegial workplace and an exceptional learning community for our students,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “We are honored to receive this prestigious national recognition.”

The results, which were released today (July 21) in The Chronicle’s seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees at 278 colleges and universities across the U.S.
