On June 14, the University of Florida released the results of the Faculty and Staff Climate Survey conducted in the fall of 2015. Town hall meetings led by Sue Rankin of Rankin & Associates, the consulting firm engaged to coordinate the survey, were held to discuss high-level summaries of the findings from a university-wide perspective. A report of the findings may also now be found on the survey website.
To honor the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, UF hosted a commemoration and unity ceremony on the evening of June 28. Hundreds of people gathered at the Century Tower, which was illuminated in rainbow colors as a beacon of solidarity.
Designed to help determine how well the university fosters an overall sense of belonging for its faculty and staff, the UF Faculty and Staff Climate Survey was available for completion from Oct. 27 through Nov. 27 of 2015. In June, a representative from Rankin & Associates — the consulting firm engaged to coordinate the survey — will be on campus to discuss high-level summaries of the findings from a university-wide perspective.
