St. Louis College of Pharmacy Named 2019 "Great College to Work For"

Published on 20 September 2019

St. Louis College of Pharmacy has once again earned distinction as a “Great College to Work For.” The designation follows the release of the results of a new survey conducted by the Great Colleges to Work For program and released this week in the Chronicle of Higher Education, a leading publication for colleges and universities.

Now in its 12th year, the survey recognizes colleges and universities nationwide that get top ratings from their employees on workforce practices and policies. A total of 236 institutions participated in the 2019 survey, with 85 institutions being recognized as 2019 Great Colleges to Work For.

This year, the College was honored in the category of “facilities, workspaces and security.” The category recognizes institutions that successfully meet the needs of employees, feature an aesthetically pleasing campus environment and take steps to provide a safe and secure environment for the campus community. This is the eighth time that the College has received recognition as a Great College to Work For, and the second time it has been recognized in this category.

“We are honored to have once again been named a Great College to Work For,” said John A. Pieper, Pharm.D., FCCP, FAPhA, president of the College. “This recognition is important because it demonstrates that our many efforts to provide outstanding campus facilities and top-notch security are being recognized by those who work for us. Our staff and faculty members are our greatest assets, and we take pride in providing the best and safest work environment possible for them.”

Representing one of the largest and most respected workplace recognition programs in the country, the 2019 Great Colleges to Work For two-part assessment process featured an institutional questionnaire that captured employment data and workplace policies from each institution, along with a survey that was administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff.
