Employee Engagement Survey

We asked. You answered. We are listening.

Earlier this year, WCU faculty and staff were given the opportunity to participate in the UNC System Employee Engagement Survey, which is part of a five-year project developed by the University of North Carolina system to help achieve the goals of the UNC System Strategic Plan. The survey also aligns with the goals of WCU’s strategic plan, 2020 Vision: Focusing on our Future. The survey was administered through an outside vendor, ModernThink, which has implemented similar studies for hundreds of colleges nationwide and for the Chronicle of Higher Education “Great Colleges to Work For” report. An overview of results from the 2018 survey may be accessed at the following link:  2018 UNC System Employee Engagement Survey - Summary of Results

 The data collected from the initial survey will establish baseline metrics and allow university leadership to build on success and address challenges. The survey results may also assist the UNC system in advocating for improvements to human resource policies at the statewide level that are generally beyond the university’s institutional control. Two follow-up surveys will be administered in 2020 and 2022. 

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Dr. Cory Causby, WCU's Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources.
