OCTOBER 14, 2021 — Editor’s note: The following message was sent via email today from President Taylor Eighmy, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Kimberly Andrews Espy, Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President for Business Affairs Veronica Salazar Mendez, and Vice President for Inclusive Excellence Myron Anderson to all faculty and staff:
Last fall 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 the survey results, and let you know about upcoming opportunities for further discussion.
We invite you to review the high-level response summaries for a glimpse into how faculty and staff institution-wide regard UTSA’s strengths and areas of opportunity. These baseline fall 2020 data are considered representative of the perspectives of our university community given the strong 56% response rate.
Over the summer, our vice presidents, deans and division leaders had an opportunity to delve more deeply into the specific responses for employees in their areas. We want to give our community several opportunities to discuss the survey results, both at the university and college/divisional level. As such, we will have multiple opportunities for you to learn more and engage:
The results of our Student Experience Survey will be shared later in the semester for a more holistic view of UTSA’s strengths and areas of opportunity.
Thank you, as always, for your support and commitment to making UTSA a model university on the continued quest to fulfill our institutional values of integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration and innovation. We are very much looking forward to thoughtful discussions regarding the survey results, as well as continuing to assess our ongoing progress in the years to come. Your voices are, and will continue to be, essential and central to this process.

Weather permitting, experienced astronomers will provide a handful of telescopes of varying designs, give training on how each operates, and point to various astronomical objects that may appear in the sky for that given time of the year. If you have a telescope and do not know how to operate it, feel free to bring it and get instructions on its use.4th Floor of Flawn Science Building, Main Campus
