Employee Engagement Survey

We asked. You answered. We are listening.

2024 UNC System Engagement logo


The University of North Carolina is committed to providing a quality work environment for its faculty and staff so that all employees of the University can be successful in the work they accomplish for our students and the State of North Carolina.

Toward this goal, the University of North Carolina System will launch the fourth iteration of its system-wide employee engagement survey project on March 25, 2024. The 2024 survey will be shorter than previous versions but will continue to include a broad range of questions to measure faculty and staff feedback on various topics on employee engagement and work environment.

The data collected through the survey process has established baseline and potential trend metrics that will allow university leadership to build on success and address challenges. The survey results may also assist the UNC system in advocating for improvements to human resource policies at the state level that are generally beyond the university’s institutional control.

The 2022 survey was administered as a “pulse” survey and measured employee satisfaction in 9 broad areas ranging from job satisfaction and support to communication and institutional COID-19 response. Overall participation was excellent with 64% of WCU employees responding (compared to 55% in 2018 and 44% for the UNC System overall). WCU’s overall average rating on the survey of 68% exceeded both the 2022 UNC System average (65%) and WCU’s 2020 rating (66%).

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Dr. Cory Causby, WCU's Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources.
