Upcoming Faculty/Staff Survey for The Chronicle’s Great Colleges to Work For Program 2017
Florida Atlantic University has decided to participate in the 2017 Great Colleges to Work For program sponsored by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Now in its tenth year, the Great Colleges program recognizes institutions that have created exceptional work environments. I consider this to be an important endeavor and respectfully ask for your participation.
Things to know:
- Your responses to the survey will be completely confidential
- Your participation is entirely voluntary
- Instructions on how to access the survey will be sent on March 13 (but remember: only a random selection of faculty will be contacted to participate)
- The survey audience includes full-time faculty and staff
The survey will be processed by ModernThink LLC, an independent management consulting firm focusing on workplace quality in higher education. They will manage all aspects of the survey process and ultimately perform the analysis that will determine which institutions will be recognized.
