Staples supports local dance center
Staples Foundation, the private charitable arm of Staples Inc., awarded $5,000 to The Center for Contemporary Dance last month under a program that lets Staples associates direct donations. The Staples Foundation Grants will fund student presentations for the September and October Sacred Slave Stories series.
Working well at Rollins
Rollins College is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education. This is the sixth consecutive year the College has received the honor.
The results, released July 21 in The Chronicle’s seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees at 278 colleges and universities. Rollins was honored among the medium-sized universities with 3,000-9,999 students. The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution and a survey administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.
