The University community is being asked to participate in an important survey to gather information about the climate of the institution.

The Campus Climate Faculty and Staff Survey questionnaire, which is voluntary and confidential, is open to all employees at The University of Toledo. The online survey is available here, and respondents are being asked to complete it by Monday, April 30.

“The climate survey provides the University the opportunity to gather important data from employees about their interactions with others on campus,” said Lawrence J. Burns, vice president for external affairs. “It also gives us the opportunity to enhance campus-wide understanding and reinforces the University’s commitment to diversity.”

The online survey asks the participants to select their position at the University — faculty, University staff or hospital staff — and answer a series of questions about how they are treated at UT and how they treat others.

The University is striving for an at least 20 percent response rate to gather quantifiable data that can be compared to past surveys. All faculty and staff were sent an email inviting them to participate.

As a way to thank participants for their time, each person who completes the survey will receive a discount coupon worth 25 percent off merchandise at Participants also have the option be entered into a drawing to win one of five $100 prepaid gift cards.
