Thursday, July 17: Faculty climate survey results

In spring 2014, the Faculty Climate Survey was administered to faculty at the rank of instructor and above. The survey questions covered a range of topics including the quality of faculty life, satisfaction, workload, sources of stress, work environment, leadership, mentoring, promotion and tenure, and retention.

The Faculty Climate Survey that was conducted in the spring semester has been completed. The team from the Office of Institutional Research have been analyzing the data obtained and preparing reports that answer important questions such as: How satisfied are our faculty with their lives here? What are our strengths? What are areas of concern? Compared to a past survey from 2010, are things improving or deteriorating? How do we compare with our peer institutions?

At the next session, Jean Gubbins, Amanda Thomas and Joshua Terchek from the Office of Institutional Research that conducted the survey and are analyzing the results will share with us the results and answer any questions.

Please join us for this discussion from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid).

Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session. To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend each session by emailing us at
