If You Haven’t Done So Yet — Please Complete Great Colleges Survey

Our institution is participating in The Chronicle’s Great Colleges to Work For program, a study designed to gather benchmarking data within higher education and to recognize institutions that have built great workplaces.
Part of the program involves an employee survey distributed to a random sample of each institution’s full-time Faculty, Administrators, Exempt and Non-exempt Staff. An invitation to take this survey was sent by email from to a random selection of our employees on March 18, 2013. The deadline to complete the survey is Monday, April 15, 2013.
We want to extend a thank you to those of you who have already completed the survey.  ModernThink has reported that our response rate of 23% to date is above the average response rate of 19%.  We appreciate you taking the time to share your views and opinions.
If you have not yet completed the survey, please take a moment to do so. We value your feedback. The results will be factored into the overall scoring process that will ultimately determine the institutions recognized. The Chronicle will publish the findings this summer in a special Academic Workplace supplement, due to be released at the end of July.
We encourage everyone’s participation! A high response rate helps ensure accurate results and demonstrates the commitment of our workforce. Whether or not our institution is recognized, we can learn from the feedback and make improvements for our future.
Thank you in advance for your participation. Please visit if you have any questions.
