The Chronicle of Higher Education Honors Lake Area Technical Institute and Zane State College with its "2011 Great Colleges to Work For" Award

July 2011 – Washington, DC


The Chronicle of Higher Education (The Chronicle) announced it is presenting Lake Area Technical Institute (SD) and Zane State College (OH) with its "2011 Great Colleges to Work For®" award. The announcement, presented in The Chronicle's Friday, July 29, 2011 edition notes the award is given to colleges excelling in some of the 12 categories indentified as key to excellence in an academic workplace.

The announcement notes that the survey took place in March and April of this year and had two components: a questionnaire about institutional characteristics and a faculty/staff questionnaire about individuals' evaluations of their institutions.

"Zane State College has received several notable recognitions in recent years, including our ranking by Washington Monthly magazine as a top ten two-year college a few years ago," said Dr. Paul Brown, president of Zane State College. "This ranking is particularly special because it is based on feedback from employees who are the heart of this institution. A satisfying work environment with great employees translates to a positive learning experience for students." Zane State was recognized in particular for excellence in compensation and benefits, professional/career development programs and job satisfaction.

Lake Area Technical Institute received recognition for excellence in confidence in senior leadership, teaching environment, collaborative governance, respect and appreciation, facilities as well as in workplace and security. President Deb Shephard is pleased with the honor as it acknowledges one of the institute's main goals. "This is a very satisfying affirmation of Lake Area Tech, but our real goal is not recognition -- it's being a community that values the needs and contributions of every individual. In that sense everyone at Lake Area Tech helps to make this a great place to work."

The Clements Group is assisting both Lake Area Technical Institute and Zane State College with their current campaigns. Great Colleges to Work For® is one of the largest and most respected workplace-recognition programs in the country.
