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

Climate survey...The survey aimed to assess perceptions of the work and academic climate at the University of Illinois. The UIC Survey Research Laboratory (SRL) assisted with the survey. All faculty, staff, and students on the three main campuses of the University—Urbana‐Champaign, Chicago, and Springfield—and at other locations, including Rockford, Peoria, and other extension locations, were invited to participate. There was a separate questionnaire for faculty, staff and students. Data were collected primarily by means of an online survey; however, every effort was made to ensure that those who do not regularly use computers had access to a paper version of the questionnaire. The original frame included 59,166 students and employees on the Urbana‐Champaign campus. Of these, 11,124 completed the questionnaire; the response rate was 34.9% for employees and 13.1% for students
