Notre Dame Faculty Experience Survey 2013–14

In 2013, the University of Notre Dame partnered with several peer universities to conduct a Faculty Experience Survey. This study was intended to assess institutional climate, work load, work/life balance, the tenure/promotion process, mentoring, research and scholarship infrastructure, and benefits.

Survey responses were collected by the Office of Strategic Planning & Institutional Research (OSPIR) of the University of Notre Dame on behalf of the multi-institutional consortium. Provost Burish then appointed a blue ribbon committee of Notre Dame faculty, chaired by Professor Katherine Spiess, to examine the results. To protect the anonymity of individual survey participants, only aggregated data was analyzed and reported.

The blue ribbon committee has since completed its work and submitted a detailed report, available below, with important observations and recommendations that will allow us better to understand and to improve the faculty experience at Notre Dame. Also below, you will find an earlier, preliminary presentation of the survey’s raw data.
