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.
The overall response rate for the survey was 36 percent. 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. A report of these findings also will be available on the survey website once it is provided to UF in June.
Town hall meetings with Rankin & Associates will be held first in June and then again in September for those who are not on campus over the summer. No registration is needed to attend.
- June 14, 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., Deweese Auditorium, McKnight Brain Institute
- June 14, 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., Pugh Hall Ocora

Starting in late June through early fall, faculty and staff forums moderated by members of UF’s Climate Study Work Group and the President’s Council on Diversity will also provide the campus community with opportunities to review and discuss the results, to share their thoughts on the results most salient to them, and to begin to brainstorm action items and next steps.
