Faculty Survey

In Fall 2020, the Office of Institutional Planning & Analysis at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) partnered with the Faculty Advocacy, Care, Engagement, and Support (FACES) initiative, and the Faculty Center to develop and administer the Faculty Perspectives & Experiences Survey.

The purpose of this survey was to gather information around topics such as: faculty perspectives on the campus’ response to COVID-19, experiences working in the virtual environment, awareness and use of CSUSM resources and support programs, and experiences with workplace civility and incivility. The survey was also designed to ask about faculty interactions with the Faculty Center and suggestions for how the University can best support faculty during this time.

All CSUSM Faculty Unit 3 members including professors, lecturers, librarians, coaches, and faculty SSP-AR roles (N=938) were invited to complete the survey from November 30 through December 14, 2020. 305 individuals responded, for a total response rate of 33%. Responses were de-identified prior to analysis to protect confidentiality.

The data from this survey will be used to inform intentional programming for FACES and to enhance and build upon the resources offered from the Faculty Center.

The COVID-19 related survey items were created for the purpose of collecting information to better understand the faculty experience so that CSUSM can continue to support faculty during this unprecedented time.

Questions about the survey can be directed to IP&A at
