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

This survey is being administered to all UNLV employees.

This survey is anonymous, and the identity of survey participants will not be linked to individual responses. Researchers will not be able to match a participant’s answers with his/her name or identity. However, demographic information will be collected in order to extrapolate the specific views of subpopulations of employees, including women, racial and ethnic minorities, persons living with a disability, and gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender employees.

On Nov. 7, 2012, President Neal Smatresk sent the announcement below that established the Full Participation Committee:

President Neal Smatresk and Vice President for Diversity Initiatives, Luis Valera are pleased to announce the formation of the UNLV Committee on Full Participation, Diversity, and Engagement.

Further, and as recommended by the Faculty Senate, “the outcome of the planning process will culminate in a university-wide diversity plan, which defines strategies and assigns accountability for achieving the University's goals. Such plan to include both annual exit interviews of faculty and staff, and periodic campus climate surveys which include academic and administrative faculty, and classified staff, the data from which shall be publicly available. All current and available historical data on climate will be made public as part of this planning process."
