Auburn professors some of the happiest in the country

According to Auburn professors, it’s more like ELEVENure!

Auburn faculty members are some of the most content in the world, at least they were in 2006 (sociology department notwithstanding) , when 6,000 of their pre-tenure peers at 31 other universities were surveyed on what makes a happy-minded professor.

According to a Harvard study turned book published by Johns Hopkins University, Auburn was among the seven best institutions for tenure-track professors in terms of tenure policy clarity, work-life balance, collegiality, research support, and good leadership.

Other schools scoring high: North Carolina State, Ohio State , the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Iowa, Kansas, and North Carolina at Pembroke.
