11-3-16 Weekly Three

Faculty Survey – All faculty—full-time, part-time, tenure/tenure track, LCPL, Visiting and Adjuncts - received Miami’s faculty survey last week and to-date, 12% of our faculty have participated. The survey covers multiple topics and is estimated to take between 30-45 minutes to complete. I urge you to participate. It is critically important that the information gathered via the survey represent the experiences and opinions of the majority of faculty in order for the results to guide academic planning and action steps moving forward.

  • Sent by the Office of Institutional Research (OIR)
  • Contained the subject line “HERI Faculty Survey Invitation”
  • Included a secure link to the survey that is safe to open
