UNH Faculty Senate

Motion on Workplace Perception Survey


Workplace Perception Survey


1.  Motion presenter:   Karen Graham

2.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  3/24/08

3.  Rationale: 

UNH has applied for a National Science Foundation grant under the NSF ADVANCE program for the advancement of women and underrepresented minorities in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. This initiative was started and has been driven by faculty. The grant would be used to develop policies, procedures, and programs to support the development of an improved climate of inclusion at UNH.  In preparation for this initiative and to enable future assessment of its progress, we are conducting a survey to learn about UNH faculty members’ perceptions of their workplace: what they like, what they dislike, and what is important to their daily life, satisfaction, and productivity. Understanding these issues is the initial step toward improving the UNH workplace for all faculty.  The survey would be sent to faculty at all levels. 

4.  Motion: 

The Faculty Senate supports the Workplace Perception Survey.

5.  Senate action:   passed, unanimously

Senate chair’s signature:  William W. Stine
