Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is about giving employees the opportunity to have a voice. We use a third party vendor to conduct the survey to ensure the confidentiality of our faculty and staff.

When employees use that opportunity to provide thoughtful input and leaders take action, our data show that engagement improves. We conduct the survey biennially so leaders, faculty, and staff have enough time between surveys to take action.

The next survey will take place in the fall of 2019.
