A brief description of the institution’s methodology for evaluating employee satisfaction and engagement:
The University of Nebraska engaged with Gallup to distribute a survey across the Nebraska system to student, faculty, and staff to create a baseline assessment of the campus climate in the Fall of 2021. The University of Nebraska system consists of 4 campuses, of which UNL is one of. 6,250 Faculty, Staff, and Administrators across the system responded to the survey. The total population of faculty and staff for the NU System is 16,000 - a 39% response rate. The number of responses by campus was not provided, but the responses to each question were broken out by each campus.

UNL also conducted a Future of Work study in Spring 2022. Through the survey, UNL’s Future of Work committee is sought input from staff regarding their work experiences and satisfaction through an anonymous survey. Data collected is intended to help campus leadership better understand lessons learned about working through the COVID-19 pandemic and how to apply those lessons to future work settings and policies.

A brief description of the mechanism(s) by which the institution addresses issues raised by the evaluation:
Administrators at each campus are responsible for reviewing data and providing an action plan to address any immediate areas of concern. This survey was meant to serve as a baseline measurement against future surveys, meant to be distributed on a regular basis.
