Thank you for your survey participation

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you so much to everyone who took time to complete this year's E2 Employee Engagement Survey and the Campus Climate Survey.  Overall, we had a good response rate for both of these very important surveys.  I am confident that through your feedback we have gathered a wealth of useful information, which we can apply to enhance the living, learning, and working environment here at UMD.   

Response rates for the Employee Engagement Survey:

UMD Overall Response: Employee Engagement
UMD Faculty
UMD Staff

Response rates for the Campus Climate Survey:

UMD Overall Response: Campus Climate
Undergraduate Student
Graduate Student
Professional Student
Faculty (medical and pharmacy)

The leadership team and I appreciate those who provided feedback. We look forward to engaging the campus community to review the results and work together to develop and execute action plans.  The results of the Engagement Survey will be shared with campus early in 2016.  The results of the Climate Survey will take longer due to timelines with our vendor and summer schedules.  Those results will be shared with campus in Fall 2016.  

Your contributions to UMD are vital, and we look forward to working together to continue developing a campus where people are connected, welcomed, and feel supported in their success.

Thank you again for your cooperation and participation in the survey.
