Employee Engagement Survey

The next UNC System Employee Engagement Survey will be conducted in February 2020 by ModernThink LLC, an independent research and consulting firm that specializes in higher education workplace quality assessment. Survey participation is voluntary and completely confidential.

The engagement survey collects data about how faculty and staff view the university as a place to work, and will help the UNC System identify areas of strength and needed improvements at each institution. The data collected in 2018 established a baseline metric for engagement to track over the course of this initiative.

Over the past 18 months, a wide variety of initiatives have been undertaken at UNC Asheville to address the areas for improvement outlined in the 2018 survey results, including Common Grounds Sessions hosted by the Chancellor, listening sessions with the Provost and the Chancellor, and launching The Weekly Wag, the faculty/staff internal newsletter.
