A brief description of the institution’s methodology for evaluating employee satisfaction and engagement:
In 2014, the Roosevelt University Senate administered the HERI Faculty Survey in order to quantitatively assess the RU faculty’s engagement in teaching, research, and service activities. The survey also touches on faculty’s level of stress, satisfaction with their institution, and perspectives for undergraduate education. 247 FT instructional faculty were surveyed out of 848 total FTE faculty and staff (or 29% of FTE employees), with return rate of 45% (N=111). The results were distributed by the Senate in Oct 2015.
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 HERI Survey results were presented in a University Senate meeting in the Fall of 2015 to the university community. Since the time of the survey in Feb 2014, the university's administration has undergone a transformation, with a new President taking the reins in July 2015, an Interim Provost directing academic operations, and a new Chair of the Board of Trustees overseeing the entire university. Substantive and positive changes in communication protocols and professional development funding have already been enacted in Fall 2015.
The year the employee satisfaction and engagement evaluation was last administered:
