Campus Climate Survey

Your Voice Counts

Dear Colleagues,

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.

To better understand our strengths and to identify areas where we need to improve, we are conducting a confidential Faculty and Staff Campus Climate Survey. The survey will assess your perceptions and experiences as an employee at UTSA around a variety of topics, including communication, management, professional development, workplace culture and inclusivity, among others. Our goal is to conduct a similar survey for our students in the Spring 2021.

We have engaged ModernThink—a highly respected firm that specializes in university employee engagement research—to administer the survey. On October 19, 2020, you will receive an email from ModernThink that includes your individual password and survey link. You will have 2 weeks to complete the survey. As a thanks for your time, you will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for one of three parking passes of your choice, or one of twenty $20 gift cards.

The survey results will become available in the spring semester, and we will be sure to share them with all of you. They will establish a baseline for us to periodically measure change in the university’s culture and inclusiveness, inform our institutional priorities and benchmark UTSA with similar institutions nationwide. Your candid feedback is vital to the success of the survey, and your responses will be entirely confidential and unidentifiable.

Because this survey serves multiple purposes, the intent is that it will reduce the overall number of faculty-staff surveys administered at UTSA. More information about this effort can be found on the Campus Climate Survey website, and any questions or feedback can be directed to Cate Wengelnik, project manager for Inclusive Excellence, at x4451 or cate.wengelnik@utsa.edu.

Thank you in advance for participating in this important effort, and for helping us to improve UTSA for the benefit of all faculty and staff.

Sincerely,
