From the Chancellor
I’m pleased that 54 percent of NC State faculty and staff participated in the 2018 UNC System Employee Engagement Survey, exceeding the 50-percent participation goal set by the system. Your thoughtful and candid input will help us create a culture of continuous improvement here at NC State and within the larger UNC System.
The survey is part of a five-year strategic plan initiative that involves all 17 UNC System institutions. Here at NC State, the results of the survey were overwhelmingly positive. NC State faculty and staff understand how their work contributes to the mission of this extraordinary university, and they are universally proud to be members of the Wolfpack family.
The survey highlighted many employee engagement areas in which we are strong but also showed areas where we can improve. And we will.
I have asked Marie Williams, associate vice chancellor for human resources, and Nancy Whelchel, director for survey research, to work with an interdisciplinary team of faculty and staff from across campus to review the survey data and develop a high-level action plan to help us build on our strengths and address our challenges. In addition, vice chancellors and deans have been asked to review the results and develop action plans for their respective units.
I invite you to become familiar with this website and visit often to learn more about these efforts. With your involvement, we can create and support the best possible working environment at NC State.
