(St. Louis)- For the first time, St. Louis College of Pharmacy has been named a “Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education.
“On behalf of everyone at St. Louis College of Pharmacy, it is an honor to receive this prestigious designation,” said College President Dr. John A. Pieper. “Our faculty and staff work tirelessly to ensure our graduates become strong pharmacy leaders who make a positive impact on the lives of patients and in the community. It’s wonderful to see the College’s commitment to our faculty and staff, and their commitment to the College, recognized nationally.”
The results, released in the chronicle’s fifth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 46,000 employees at 294 colleges and universities nationwide.
The College was recognized for its fairness of compensation and the ability of benefits to meet the needs of employees. The College works diligently to recruit and retain the best faculty and staff available. Each year compensation and benefits are compared locally, statewide and nationally in the public and private sector.
