On Oct. 18, CU Anschutz will launch a Campus and Workplace Culture (CWC) Survey, and all students, residents/fellows, faculty and staff are encouraged to take part.
Designed to gather information about the experiences of our campus community members, this survey will help deepen understanding of our campus culture and foster a stronger sense of belonging, respect and support at CU Anschutz.
About the CWC Survey
The greater the participation in the CWC Survey, the better an understanding our campus will gain of our strengths and priorities for achieving a more just, equitable and inclusive culture. In addition, a $15,000 pool of incentive funding is available to support campus and community groups. Every completed survey unlocks a portion of that funding in direct support for the organizations below – making a difference for people on and off campus.
The CWC Survey is led by the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Community Engagement and the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, and part of a broader effort underway on all four CU campuses. After the survey period, results will be used to develop action plans for our campus community.
How to Take Part
Check your inbox Oct. 18 for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org containing your unique survey link. The CWC Survey takes 10 to 20 minutes on average, and can be completed at your own pace and over multiple sessions. Your survey link will be live through Nov. 19.
Survey responses are confidential and secure. With strict internal safeguards in place, no administrators, supervisors or others will have access to respondent identities or files that may connect names or email addresses with survey responses.
