Great Colleges to Work For survey open until March 31

Now in its 16th year, the “Great Colleges to Work For” program is a national survey that recognizes institutions that get top ratings from faculty and staff for building great workplace practices and policies. 

With your help, last year Kent State University was one of only 68 colleges and universities to receive the 2022 designation by the Great Colleges to Work For program. Further, Kent State was recognized in five categories: Compensation and Benefits; Confidence in Senior Leadership; Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging; Faculty Experience and Shared Governance. 

The University is again participating in the Great Colleges to Work For program to track our progress in responding to your insights through this internal and external benchmarking process. As such, we encourage you to share your feedback regarding Kent State. Although acknowledgment is not guaranteed, your input allows us to improve existing practices and implement new programs, policies and procedures. 

On or around Mar. 4, an invitation to take the Great Colleges to Work For survey was distributed to a random selection of our employees and faculty members, meaning you may or may not have been chosen to provide feedback. If you received an invitation, we welcome and encourage you to participate and share your honest viewpoints, as a high response rate helps ensure an accurate representation of our community. We thank everyone who participated last year. 

Please note that the survey, which runs through Mar. 31, is voluntary and completely confidential. Our institution cannot trace results back to individuals. ModernThink LLC, an independent management-consulting firm focusing on workplace quality in higher education, will process your survey. ModernThink can be reached at 888-684-4658, or by email at

Thank you in advance for your participation. Please contact Dr. Susan Perry, assistant provost for accreditation, assessment and learning, at, if you have any questions.
