OHIO named one of 14 Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs

Ohio University has been named one of the 2015 Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs at Research Institutions by the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education magazine.

OHIO is one of 14 universities throughout the country to receive the designation, which recognizes divisions of student affairs for their commitment to workplace diversity, equitable staffing practices, and supportive work environments. The list of this year’s honorees was announced in the Aug. 13 issue of Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.

“We are extremely honored and proud to be recognized for our efforts to foster a healthy, supportive and inclusive environment for our very dedicated staff,” said Jenny Hall-Jones, OHIO’s dean of students and interim vice president for student affairs. “Student success stands at the forefront of everything we do, and we know that Ohio University employees serve as the foundation of that mission. This designation marks yet another point of pride for the University in its role as an educator and an employer.”

The Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs designation is determined by a national study involving ACPA member institutions. The study was conducted by the Center for Higher Education Enterprise at Ohio State University whose researchers used a web-based survey approach launched in 2014 to elicit information from ACPA member institutions on such topics as family friendliness, salary and benefits, and professional development opportunities. A multi-part, weighted algorithm was used to classify the responding institutions in the final phase of analysis.
