For the third consecutive year, Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, a leading source of national news covering diversity in higher education, has named West Chester University’s Division of Student Affairs one of its “Most Promising Places to Work” for 2021.
WCU is one of only two universities in Pennsylvania to have earned the prestigious distinction that was awarded to just 30 select universities and colleges in the country.
Diverse will recognize WCU and other winners during a virtual ceremony in June. The research findings will be published in the June 10 edition of the magazine.
“The Division of Student Affairs takes pride in creating engaging and meaningful learning experiences for students, in collaboration with many areas within and outside of our division,” said Vice President for Student Affairs Zebulun R. Davenport. “As we inspire an environment that yields much academic success inside the classroom, we work equally as hard to cultivate the holistic development of our students outside the classroom. Our team’s efforts have lasting effects on students’ lives.”
Research findings have been compiled by the American College Personnel Association (ACPA). With a focus on workplace diversity, staffing practices, and work environment, a web-based survey approach was used to examine categories such as family friendliness, salary/benefits, and professional development opportunities.
