Why Does it Matter?
As we move into a new era as a university and search for a new president, it is an opportune time to hear what employees have to say about such topics as campus leadership, communication, relationships, respect and appreciation, job satisfaction, institutional pride, support, the teaching environment, professional development, and compensation.
Faculty members, administrators and staff members are significantly impacted by campus climate. According to workplace studies, the personal and professional development of employees is greatly enhanced through a healthy working environment. Research suggests that faculty members who consider their campus climate healthy and inclusive are more likely to feel personally and professionally supported. Creating a healthy campus climate is important for faculty, staff and students.
