I have been working at Randolph College part-time (More than 5 years)
small staff and recognition, everyone is willing to help each other and make the department and school better for each other and of course the students
being a small school we are limited to some of the majors offered compared to other schools, and the small student body affects some of the potential incoming students
Advice to Management
The biggest issue is getting a larger student body, perhaps accepting students earlier on academic standings that do not need need based aid that would be on waiting list and allow them to decide to come by giving them a chance to make it at the institution and grow the student body at no cost to the school other than a potential hit on the dropout rate if they cannot handle the workload and standards of the school
Strong community between faculty, staff and students. Overall, people are friendly and self motivated. Due to the small size of our school there is a very special connection with the students and those that utilize our services are very appreciative of what we have to offer to them. The area in which I work has a very close team and we all collaborate very well together. Immediate supervision is superb and we are always recognized for a job well done. There is a true understanding here of the life/work balance. It is very autonomous and each individual just needs to manage their time effectively in order to get the job done in a timely manner.
As with most organizations there are budget restrictions that make it difficult to do all that we would like to do as a department. However, through collaboration with other departments and support from senior management we are usually able to push through special projects/programs if they are seen as valuable for all. Sometimes the size of the school is a challenge. Due to how small it is, it is difficult to get recognition on a regional/national level with colleagues in my field.
Advice to Management
Don't ever forget that we are here to serve and educate the students first.
The administration was amazingly supportive.
The department chair was uncommunicative.
