Inclusion & Engagement

Faculty & Staff Climate Initiative

At his September 2015 State of the University Address, President Fuchs announced a university-wide faculty and staff climate survey. Conducted that fall, the survey was designed to help determine how well the university fosters an overall sense of belonging for its faculty and staff while leveraging the uniqueness of the people who work here.  Creating an inclusive climate allows all of us to do our best work and together shape a better UF. Based on discussions and feedback received since the survey results were released in June of 2016, the Climate Survey Working Group has identified areas on which to focus along with associated action items that it has begun to address with campus stakeholders.
