Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University was selected for the fifth year in a row as one of the “Great Colleges to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education, the nation’s most respected publication covering colleges and universities. The rankings are based on an institutional audit that captures demographics and workplace policies from each institution and a survey of employees on workforce practices. A total of 281 institutions participated in this year’s survey – 185 four-year institutions and 96 two-year institutions – with 86 being named “Great Colleges to Work For.”
Two teams of students from Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus placed first in their categories in the Revolutionary Advanced Aerospace Systems – Academic Linkage (RASC-AL) design competition sponsored by NASA and the National Institute for Aerospace (NIA).
The final phase of the athletic facility upgrade project at the Prescott campus is almost completed, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the new facility scheduled for mid-August. This represents the culmination of years of work which interconnected five different buildings into a single 50,000-square-foot facility.
Embry-Riddle can help students and professionals prepare for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification exam with a new boot camp that begins in August. Through use of a live, virtual classroom, students can communicate in real-time with professors and ask questions, share ideas and interact and collaborate with other students around the globe.
