A brief description of the institution’s methodology for evaluating employee satisfaction and engagement:
The Personal Assessment of the College Environment (PACE) survey was
administered to the staff, faculty, and administrators of Metropolitan Community College. The purpose of the survey was to obtain the perceptions of personnel concerning the college climate and to provide data to assist MCC in promoting more open and constructive communication among faculty, staff, and administrators. Researchers at the National Initiative for Leadership and Institutional Effectiveness (NILIE) and the Institutional Effectiveness Office of MCC collaborated to administer a survey that would capture the opinions of personnel throughout the college.
Full-time faculty and staff and part-time regular staff employees of MCC were invited to participate in the survey through an email that contained the survey link and instructions. Follow-up emails were sent during the response period to encourage participation. The survey was up for three weeks. Completed surveys were submitted online and the data compiled by NILIE. The data were analyzed using the statistical package SAS, version 9.1.
A brief description of the mechanism(s) by which the institution addresses issues raised by the evaluation (including examples from the previous three years):
The College established a committee to focus on areas of improvement from the PACE survey results. The committee collected additional data through focus groups and then established a working group to move the findings forward.
