Rhodes College has been named among the “Most Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs” (MPPWSA), which is an annual report produced by newsmagazine Diverse: Issues in Higher Education and the ACPA-College Student Educators International. Twenty-two institutions (not numerically ranked) made the 2024 MPPWSA, which will be published March 14 in the 40th anniversary edition of the magazine.

Now in its 11th year, MPPWSA recognizes student affairs workplaces that are vibrant, diverse, supportive, and committed to staff work-life balance, professional development, and inclusive excellence.

Selection for the national recognition considers responses to a survey conducted by the ACPA-College Student Educators International. The survey covers various issues such as workplace diversity, work environment, family friendliness, salary/benefits, and professional development.

“We are proud to be acknowledged as one of the most promising places to work in student affairs. This recognition reflects our dedication to fostering an inclusive, supportive environment for our student life professionals, and they can make a meaningful impact on students’ educational journey,” said Nicole J. Johnson, vice president for student life.
