Campus Climate Survey

2017 Campus Climate Results 

YSU again participated in the Chronicle's "Great Colleges to Work For" Survey in April 2017. This year, all full time faculty and staff, as well as a sample of part-time faculty, were invited to participate. The survey response rate in 2017 was 55%, up from 40% in 2016.

In summer 2017, three teams of volunteer faculty and staff analyzed the data and created summaries of the data. Below is the announcement to the campus community, including a summary of the 2017 results in comparison to the 2016 survey. More data detail, including the comprehensive summary of the open-ended data, can be accessed through the data links at right.
