Three local colleges have been recognized as top places to work.
Elon and Duke universities and Wake Technical Community College made the latest "Great Colleges to Work For" survey from the Chronicle of Higher Education.
The Chronicle, a national trade publication covering higher education issues, noted 97 of 275 universities it surveyed. Designated universities had to stand out in at least 1 of 12 categories the magazine deemed crucial to maintaining a good workplace.
Wake Tech was honored in five categories: collaborative governance, job satisfaction and support, confidence in senior leadership, supervisor or department chair relationship, and respect and appreciation. In addition, Wake Tech was named to the 2010 Great Colleges Honor Roll for receiving the most recognition in its size category.
Duke was recognized for facilities, workspaces and security, while Elon ranked high for collaborative governance, teaching environment, facilities, workspaces and security, confidence in senior leadership, and respect and appreciation.
