Employee Climate Survey

The 2015 employee climate survey was conducted during the fall semester by the Gelfond Group, a company that specializes in employee opinion surveys in higher education and corporations. The survey was emailed to 2,765 staff and faculty and had a response rate of 71 percent, up from 46 percent when the last survey was conducted in 2010. Previous employee surveys did not include faculty. Employee responses to 76 questions were rated as "favorable," "neutral" or "unfavorable" in areas ranging from rating the university as a place to work to their pay and benefits, management, diversity, individual job and experiences with their supervisor.
