17 July 2018 | Chronicle of Higher Education, a leading college and university trade publication, has named Loma Linda University (LLU) to its 2018 listing of “Great Colleges to Work For.”

The publication recognizes institutions that are rated as excellent workplaces for employees.

“This honor speaks highly to the dedication and passion our employees and faculty demonstrate each day,” said president of Loma Linda University Health, Richard H. Hart, MD, DrPH. “Their commitment to the mission of continuing the teaching and healing ministry of Jesus Christ is truly inspiring for the entire institution.”

Out of 253 academic institutions considered, Loma Linda University was one of the 84 that made the list that was released on July 16 in the Chronicle of Higher Education’s 11th Annual Report on The Academic Workplace. The reports was based on a survey of more than 50,000 people from the institutions considered.

According to a news article on the LLU website, the institution won honors in seven of the 12 recognition categories. Some of these areas included collaborative governance; confidence in senior leadership; facilities, workspace & security; work/life balance; professional/career-development programs; job satisfaction; and respect and appreciation.

A two-part assessment process involving an institutional audit and a survey administered to faculty, administrators and support staff made up the selection procedure.

“Our institution comprises a family of extraordinary people who live to serve and make a difference,” said Ronald Carter, PhD, provost of Loma Linda University. “I am inspired by the teamwork of our faculty and staff, and their commitment to academic excellence, spirituality and service.”

Loma Linda University is an Adventist coeducational health sciences university located in Loma Linda, California. The university has eight schools and the Faculty of Graduate Studies. It is the denomination’s flagship health sciences institution.
