Strong Response to Campus & Workplace Culture Survey

Dear students, faculty and staff,

Our Campus & Workplace Culture Survey has come to a close, and we want to thank all of those who took part. More than 35% of our campus community shared their experiences, providing insights into our campus culture and your feelings of belonging, respect, support and value at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.

As we shared at the survey launch, our campus set aside $15,000 in Greater Good Funding to help encourage participation and support five groups serving our campus and community. Our campus nearly reached the second tier of funding made available through this pool, but came in shy of the 50%+ participation goal that would unlock the full amount of funding.

While we did not reach our ambitious 50%+ goal as a campus, over 4,500 people provided thoughtful responses to this important survey. Heartened by this meaningful show of support for the survey effort, our campus leadership team has chosen to make all $15,000 available to these five groups in appreciation of your time and attention. 

We recognize the vital importance of the work that these groups undertake every day for the benefit of many among our campus and community, and the tremendous need several of these organizations fulfill over the winter months. You can read about the groups benefiting from the Greater Good Funding in the CU Anschutz newsroom

As we prepare to break for Thanksgiving, please accept our deep gratitude for all you do for CU Anschutz, and our special thanks to the thousands of staff, faculty, students and trainees who helped make our survey an informative one.

We look forward to sharing more with you in the new year, as our Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Community Engagement and the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness work together to analyze the results. 

Our campus’s participation in the Campus & Workplace Culture Survey informs our efforts to enrich the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, and create a welcoming and equitable environment for every member of our community.

With gratitude,

Don Elliman
Chancellor, CU Anschutz
