Faculty and Staff Engagement Survey

The survey closed on Friday, April 28, 2023. Results were shared with executive leaders and engagement champions in July. With help and guidance from Engagement Champions, departments will review their results and conduct action planning in the fall of 2023. The Faculty and Staff Engagement Survey was administered by the CU Boulder Department of Human Resources. The survey was sponsored by CU Boulder Provost Russ Moore and Chief Operating Officer Pat O’Rourke.  

The survey measured several research-based elements of engagement—enthusiasm for one’s work, career satisfaction, pride in the institution, intent to stay, connection to the mission of the institution, and others. The 2023 survey also measured aspects of faculty and staff wellness, as well as information on the hybrid work environment.

The goal of the survey was to gather information from our faculty and staff to inform interventions and initiatives that enhance the faculty and staff experience. Survey findings provide insight into the impact of leadership actions and provide trending data on key themes of importance to the campus community.

The Department of Human Resources partnered with the Arthur J. Gallagher Co. to administer the survey.

The 2023 survey was the third engagement survey conducted by the Department of Human Resources. Previous surveys were conducted in 2017 and 2020.
