Faculty Work Climate Survey
The campus conducted a study of the working environment for tenured and tenure-track faculty in the Colleges of Engineering and Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2004. The survey was designed to capture the perceptions of the faculty members regarding their workplace: what they like, what they dislike, what is important in their daily life, and what enhances or impedes productivity. The goal was to inform us how to improve job satisfaction and faculty success at UIC. Faculty members in the two colleges responded with a resounding rate of 67%, and we are appreciative of this. Due to the collaborative effort of UIC faculty, staff, and students from a number of units on the campus, specifically the Center for Research on Women and Gender, the report is now available for dissemination. The Provost will be charging a task force of senior campus leadership to develop a blueprint for policy and program recommendations based on the findings of the survey.
Thanks to all who participated in this important project.
