We want to determine if our customers are pleased with
the service that we've provided them, and to receive
suggestions for improvement, what makes us unique, and
how likely they are to recommend our services to others.
We define food access as the ability of students to acquire food without major geographical, financial, or dietary barriers. Studies have shown that barriers to food access impact students’ academic performance, health, and psychosocial function. By examining the three components of food access (affordability, nutrition, and geography), we will uncover the true state of food access on the IU-Bloomington campus, and potentially uncover data on food security in the process.
Allow chief academic officers information for evaluation of faculty job satisfaction and analysis to support implementation of policy and programs to improve the work life of faculty. Participation is at the request of the Provost
As of May 2020, the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty & Academic Affairs (VPFAA) has not yet published data or results to the public. However, we have created numerous internal analyses and reports with the COACHE 2019 data, including:
1. A summary of the 2019 COACHE results for the Provost.
2. Reports for Deans and Associate Deans. Vice Provost Eliza Pavalko has been working with them to identify school-specific areas for improvement.
3. Updates to the 2016 Gender and Faculty Satisfaction Report. Associate Vice Provost Kim Geeslin has been using the results to discuss issues such as gender equity in service assignments with department chairs.
The reports in the first two items above are confidential and cannot be shared. We may share some updates from the third report in the future (e.g., by publishing results on the VPFAA website).
In addition, VPFAA and the Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity & Inclusion are using the results to understand the campus climate at IUB. Vice Provost John Nieto-Phillips may have presented the results on campus climate in the COACHE survey at some leadership meetings.
Currently, VPFAA continues to analyze the results to identify areas for improvement as well as actionable items relevant to all faculty. Vice Provost Eliza Pavalko plans to present the COACHE results (including highlights on trends, peer comparisons, and key areas for improvement) to the BFC in fall 2020. For more information on the data and results for COACHE 2019, please contact Eliza at email@example.com or Wen Qi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
We will ask undergraduate students in University Division about their interests. We will use the information to check to see if the interests listed currently in the Explore Programs tool are relevant to our students. If we discover that some areas of high interest to our students are not represented in the current list of interests, we will update the list with these interests.
Overall Response Rate: I received 39 responses. I am hoping that I might try again in the fall.
Data & Analysis
We received very few responses. We hope to survey students again in a year.
The University Faculty Council (UFC) was charged by President McRobbie in his 2017 State of the University Address to “…consider changes to the non-tenure-track ranks to provide stronger career paths that recognize the professionalism of these important and growing segments of IU’s instructional community.” After discussion, the UFC non-tenure-track task force suggests adding a new tier occupy the highest rung within the lecturer series. The purpose of this survey is to determine the faculty’s sentiment around naming the rank.
In spring of 2019, the University Faculty Council established a task force to make a recommendation on whether or not to create a third
lecturer rank, the title and placement of that rank in the lecturer series. As a part of their work, the task force conducted a survey of IU faculty across all campuses to gauge interest in the possible titles for the third tier in the lecturer track.
The survey was distributed to 6,170 full-time faculty, both tenured/tenure-track and non-tenure-track ranks, and received 1,385 responses (a 22.4% response rate.)
The full task force report can be found at: https://ufc.iu.edu/meetings/2018-2019/circulars/U5-2019.pdf
As one of the largest employers in Indiana, with thousands of full-time employees across 9 campus locations, promoting the health and wellbeing of IU employees is vital to sustain our collective impact on the health and vitality of the state. Healthy IU is the worksite wellness department of IU, charged with this mission. Healthy IU engaged our team in both 2013 and 2015, and now again in 2019, to conduct a survey of full-time employees of Indiana University at all campuses to:
1) understand how well the workplaces of Indiana University are supporting the health of employees;
2)identify the health advantages and challenges of this university community;
3)establish baseline measures of workplace health by which progress toward a healthier IU and the effectiveness of Healthy IU initiatives might be gauged;
4) identify opportunities for healthy change that are actionable from an organizational standpoint.
Results from prior surveys have prompted policy changes at the university and campus level and guided both resource allocation and program planning for Healthy IU.
Overall Response Rate: The overall response rate for all campus locations was 26.6% (n=5100). [All full-time employees were invited, not just a sample.] At IUB, it was 24.9%. More detail on response rates for each campus will be made available in reports accessible on the Healthy IU website in early fall 2019.
Data & Analysis
A series of reports (one that is University-wide as well as one for individual campuses) has been published to the Healthy IU website at this location: https://healthy.iu.edu/campus-programs-services/university/workplace-wellness-survey.html
