Campus Climate Survey: Faculty and Staff Opinions of the Campus Environment.
This document discusses results from a Campus Climate survey conducted at Cypress College on faculty and staff during the fall 2000 semester. The survey queried employees regarding their general perception of the campus, ethnic diversity, job satisfaction, and perceptions of the students and programs. This was the first time such a study was conducted among the faculty and staff at Cypress College. The survey was sent out to all the faculty, staff and administrators at Cypress College, approximately 1,000 individuals. The response rate was about 33%. Respondents from the survey were predominantly full-time, Caucasian, male, and members of the faculty. The article outlines and discusses results for: (1) socio-demographic characteristics; (2) general college atmosphere; (3) facilities and safety; (4) campus communication; (5) diversity and gender; (6) student recruitment and retention; (7) perceptions of students; and (8) job satisfaction. It concludes that, in general, employees have a positive view of the college, their jobs, and the students they serve. However, campus facilities received negative ratings by nearly half the respondents. Appendix A contains the full text of the survey. Appendix B contains responses to the qualitative survey items.
