Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College was the only community college in Mississippi to be named to the 2015 Great Colleges to Work For list by the Chronicle of Higher Education. Of the 86 colleges and universities listed from across the nation, only three were from Mississippi.
The institutions named on the 2015 Great Colleges to Work For roster are selected based on the results of a survey of nearly 44,000 college and university employees by Modern Think.
The survey rates institutions on 12 categories in the fields of leadership, careers, the workplace and compensation. MGCCC’s top-rated categories included facilities, workplace and security; professional/career-development programs; supervisor or department chair relationships; and work/life balance.
