Great Colleges to Work For survey distributed to university employees March 27

Augusta University will be participating in the 2017 Great Colleges to Work For program sponsored by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The survey will be distributed to all university employees on March 27 via an email from Great Colleges. Just follow the link to the survey or follow the link posted on the Provost’s webpage – simply use the name and password provided.

“The Great Colleges to Work For survey will help us measure how well you think we’re doing in the areas of communication and collaboration, along with a variety of other topics,” said Dr. Gretchen Caughman, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “The assessment reports will be available during the summer, and this input will feed right into what we will be doing in the fall to finalize our new strategic plan.”

The voluntary survey is confidential and will be processed by ModernThink LLC, an independent management consulting firm focusing on workplace quality in higher education.

“The beauty of surveys is that all voices have the opportunity to be heard,” Caughman said. “I know we’re asking for that a lot lately, with both this and the survey for the strategic plan, but try as we might, there’s no way to personally talk to thousands of people. Responses to this survey will help us identify areas of strength that we want to build on as well as areas where we need to focus improvement efforts.”
