Faculty Survey Findings and Response:

During 2016, the School of Natural Sciences Faculty were asked to complete a survey regarding their experiences with the school's Administrative Units. The feedback generated played a crucial role towards the development and improvement of school-wide processes and has since been used to generate actionable improvements of our school’s services. The Administrative Units have prepared a summary of last year’s responses (See Below). In the report, you will find an overview of actions that have been taken by each unit as a direct result of Faculty feedback. We present this report to increase transparency and encourage participation in this year’s upcoming Administrative Services Survey.
