In January 2022, staff (non-faculty) in the School of Medicine and Public Health were invited to participate in the SMPH Community Pulse survey. The survey garnered 1,777 responses, for a 43.5% response rate. The results are helping chart future workplace climate improvement and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in the school.
These pages are devoted to sharing the results of the survey with the SMPH community. Explore the full results below and in more detail at the buttons afterward.
Results will be used to inform ongoing action steps and plans for the Office of Diversity and Equity Transformation and the Building Community Steering Committee.
