Strawberries, Jazz, Faculty/Staff Satisfaction

By Aaron Keck Posted May 17, 2013 at 7:26 pm

CHAPEL HILL/CARRBORO – A majority of UNC faculty and staff say the university is a “highly effective organization” with a strong vision for the future. That’s according to the results of a University-wide organizational effectiveness survey conducted in January.

UNC officials say they received more than 3,000 responses, an uptick from the last time they conducted the survey three years ago.

Among the results: 66 percent of respondents say UNC is a “highly effective organization,” and 79 percent say they’d recommend Carolina as a place to work.

The numbers aren’t all rosy, though: 54 percent also say UNC needs to make “significant changes” in order to remain successful five years from now.
