The University of Michigan has been recognized as a great place to work by the Chronicle of Higher Education for a 10th straight year.
The university was specifically recognized for outstanding benefits and compensation, based on the results of the Chronicle's 2017 "Great Colleges to Work For" survey of faculty and staff.
According to the Chronicle, 232 institutions participated in the survey in 2017, and 79 colleges and universities made the list.
Results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies, and a survey.
The Chronicle uses ModernThink LLC, a human capital consulting firm, to conduct surveys of faculty and staff at participating institutions. Survey feedback is the primary factor in determining which institutions are recognized.
