Carleton Faculty and Staff Survey

Message from the President

Feb. 29, 2024

Carleton University is conducting a survey of its faculty and staff (full-time continuing and term employees) to gather your perspectives about the state of the university. The survey will focus on eight themes including overall satisfaction, work/life balance, civility and respect, as well as growth and development.

The confidential online survey will be launched in two weeks and will be overseen by Carleton’s Office of Institutional Research and Planning (OIRP), in collaboration with Human Resources. On March 13, 2024 you will receive an email from OIRP with a secure link to the survey. Your survey will be active for four weeks and takes an estimated 15 minutes to complete. You are encouraged to complete it during your workday.

Carleton last conducted a staff survey in 2015. Due to a number of factors, including the pandemic, plans for future surveys were paused. We recognize that it is good practice to conduct staff surveys to better understand the health of an organization and we are pleased to resume this practice.

Your participation is important in assisting the university and your faculty, unit or department in its planning and continuous improvement. Results will be shared once available.

Should you have any questions once the survey is launched, please contact OIRP at:


Jerry Tomberlin, Interim President and Vice-Chancellor
