Angelo State University has been named one of the nation’s “Great Colleges to Work For” for 2019 by ModernThink, and will be recognized in a special edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education, the major national news source for college and university faculty and administrators.

ASU is one of only 85 institutions of higher education recognized nationally by ModernThink, and also ranked highly enough to be one of only 42 institutions named to The Chronicle’s 2019 Honor Roll. This marks the fifth straight year ASU has made both the “Great Colleges to Work For” list and the Honor Roll.

ASU President Brian May said, “We call ourselves the Ram Family, and we work really hard to maintain that atmosphere throughout the ASU community. Our employees are the glue that holds the Ram Family together so we can provide our students with the complete college experience that they want and deserve. Our goal is to produce well-educated graduates who are ready to take on the world. That our employees are invested in that goal and truly enjoy working at ASU is the foundation of the Ram Family.”

The “Great Colleges to Work For” designation is based upon surveys conducted earlier this year of more than 56,000 employees at 236 colleges and universities nationally.

The ModernThink survey evaluates employee satisfaction in 12 categories in four general areas: leadership, the workplace, careers and compensation. ASU is one of only two institutions in the U.S. to be recognized in all 12 categories.

ASU Human Resources Director Kurtis Neal said, “The leadership, commitment and hard work displayed by our employees on a daily basis create an amazing campus experience. I am lucky to be a part of an organization such as this. Our employees are committed to making Angelo State a great university for our students and a great place to work. The ‘Great Colleges to Work For’ designation for the fifth year in a row is a wonderful honor for the Ram Family, and making the Honor Roll for a fifth straight year is definitely something for the campus to brag about.”
