A brief description of the institution’s methodology for evaluating employee satisfaction and engagement:

CSU’s employee satisfaction survey was administered by ModernThink LLC, a human resources consulting firm based in Wilmington, DE. To perform the survey, CSU was asked to submit a list of full-time employees randomly selected across four job categories: administration, faculty, exempt professional staff, and nonexempt staff. Adjunct faculty were not included.

The assessment had two components: a questionnaire about institutional characteristics and a faculty/staff questionnaire about individual's evaluations of CSU. The assessment also included an analysis of demographic data and workplace policies, including benefits. The questionnaires were administered online. In the faculty/staff questionnaire, people responded to 60 statements using a five-point scale, ranging from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree." Those 60 statements were grouped into the one of the 12 categories below. The survey was conducted March 14 through April 15 of 2016.

Compensation & Benefits
Confidence in Senior Leadership
Facilities, Workspace, & Security
