Campus Climate Survey

As a learning community fostering dialog and discovery, it is imperative that we provide opportunities for staff and faculty to have their voices heard regarding UTSA’s workplace climate.

In the fall of 2020 we conducted the university’s first comprehensive Faculty and Staff Campus Climate Survey to gather your perspectives and suggestions regarding UTSA’s workplace environment. Below are the high level survey results, which offer a glimpse into how faculty and staff institution-wide regard UTSA’s strengths and areas of opportunity. These data are highly representative given the very strong 56% response rate.

Survey Results

Survey Definitions

OVERALL: UTSA overall survey results

2020 Honor Roll > 10,000: The Honor Roll benchmark is comprised of the average percent positive of those institutions recognized on the Great Colleges program Honor Roll and in your Enrollment Size (Large, 10,000+ students). 

2020 Carnegie Research: The Carnegie benchmark reflects the average percent positive of all institutions in your Carnegie Classification (Doctorate/Research).

2020 UTSA Peer Benchmark: UTSA has identified ten institutions to serve as peer models of excellence. We will emulate their strategies and best practices throughout our strategic planning process, and use their metrics as benchmarks in select areas. Learn more about UTSA’s Peer Models.

Each benchmark shows the average percent positive and percent negative of those institutions included in the benchmark. The percent positive is reflective of the employees who responded with “Strongly Agree” or “Agree” responses, neutral is reflective of those who selected “Sometimes Agree/Sometimes Disagree” and negative includes those employees who chose “Disagree or Strongly Disagree.” ).
