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

In 2007-08 DePauw’s Diversity Task Force created a series of Campus Climate Surveys. Three separate surveys were distributed electronically to current students, former employees and alumni. As defined in the survey, “Campus Climate refers to current attitudes, behaviors, and standards of employees and students concerning the access for, inclusion of and level of respect for individual and group needs, abilities and potential.” The major sections of each survey covered (1) Campus Experiences, (2) DePauw University Actions Relative to Climate Issues, (3) Demographic Information, (4) How to Improve the Campus Climate, (5) Experiences as a Member of the DePauw University Community, and (6) Additional Open-ended Comments.

In 2009-10 DePauw created a Gender and Families Task Force to further look at the issue of families and gender equality on campus. As part of the task force a survey for faculty members and a survey for staff members was created and distributed electronically. The primary areas covered in each survey included (1) Demographic Information, (2) Work-life Balance, (3) Division of Childcare Duties, (4) University Support for Family and Childcare Issues, (5) Satisfaction with Current Family and Childcare Policies, and (6) Areas to Improve and Additional Comment.
