University provides update on Campus Climate Survey

University provides update on Campus Climate Survey

MAY 6, 2021 — Editor’s note: The following message was sent via email today from Vice President for Inclusive Excellence Myron Anderson and Associate Vice President for People Excellence Sylvia Ann Enriquez to all faculty and staff:

Last November we conducted the university’s first comprehensive Faculty and Staff Campus Climate Survey to gather your perspectives and suggestions regarding UTSA’s workplace environment. We are writing to provide you with an update regarding our plans to share the survey results.

The response rate to the survey was excellent – 56% of you took time out of your busy schedules to respond and share your insights. This exceptional participation is a testament to the high level of engagement demonstrated by our faculty and staff in helping to create the best possible environment at UTSA for working, teaching and research.

We only recently received an initial briefing on our institutional high-level findings from our research partners at Modern Think. We expect to receive the survey results in the coming weeks, which will include unit-level breakdowns and an analysis of qualitative responses that contribute to a deeper understanding of your feedback.

These rich results deserve the time and space necessary for thoughtful review and community-wide discussions. With the close of the semester upon us, and our summer months focused on preparations to resume significant in-person campus activities this August, we now plan to share the survey results and findings early in the fall 2021 semester. This timing has the advantage of allowing us to simultaneously release the results of our Student Experience Survey for a more holistic view of UTSA’s strengths and areas of opportunity.

Meanwhile, this summer, we will share college and division-level survey results with their respective Deans and leadership so they have ample time to review the information, seek clarifications and prepare to host town halls for their faculty and staff this fall.

Thank you, as always, for your support during this extraordinary year when change and uncertainty were such constants. We are very much looking forward to thoughtful discussions regarding the survey results and gathering community input to inform our institutional strategies moving forward. Your voices are, and will continue to be, essential and central to this process.
