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

In 2014, a campus wide climate/job satisfaction assessment using nationally recognized tools from the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education and the Society of Human Resource Management was used to determine employee satisfaction. Since 2014, Indiana State Human Resources has conducted an internal Quality of Life Survey every other year.

A brief description of the mechanism(s) by which the institution addresses issues raised by the evaluation (including examples from the previous three years):

After the 2014 campus wide climate/job satisfaction assessment, there has been primary focus on four goals:
1. Development of Collaborative Teaching Program
2. Development of Advanced Mentoring Program
3. Development and distribution of Outstanding Junior Faculty and Outstanding Instructor/Lecturer Awards
4. Collaboration with other Goal 6 initiatives and the Department Success Taskforce to resolve discrepancies among faculty of color and
tenured faculty
These primary goals are continued currently.
Issues raised during the Quality of Life Survey are addressed through committees, training programs, and/or institutional policy changes depending on the severity.
