Campus Climate Surveys
In November 2009, President Jordan charged the first Campus Climate Survey Committee with developing and administering the employee and student Campus Climate Survey, and as a result of the information gathered, developing implementation strategies for improving the work environment at the University. Since that point, MSU Denver has completed six surveys, two Student Experience Surveys, three Employee Campus Climate Surveys, and one Student Survey on Sexual Violence. This website holds reports on each of the past surveys. You are invited to explore the content.
In 2010, MSU Denver conducted its first Employee Campus Climate Survey in many years. It was a groundbreaking move for the institution as a workplace, allowing the University to become part of The Chronicle of Higher Education’s annual Great Colleges to Work For survey.
Most importantly, though, we did not just let the results sit on a shelf somewhere. No, we heard you and made some significant changes based on what you told us. We established the Ombuds Office, developed a new performance evaluation instrument that uses a 360 evaluation and instituted supervisory training. We even started holding Coffee Chats with me and with Provost Vicki Golich to give you an opportunity to ask us questions and join in an informal conversation with a few of your colleagues.
