A Message from the Dean

Dean Nancy CoxThe university conducted the UK @ Work Survey in 2015, and again in 2017.  The survey, designed to give useful information on many measures of job satisfaction and employee engagement at UK, was completed by approximately 35% of CAFE faculty and staff in 2017.  All unit leaders in the college received unit-specific results of the survey, as long as there were 10 or more responses from their units. In general, average scores of job satisfaction were higher for our college than the overall “Provost Units” average, and were higher for staff than for faculty. We are certainly proud that our college results were positive in many ways. 

There are some goals our college administrative team, along with chairs and unit directors, have been working on, and we created Action Steps (links to 2016 and 2019 action steps below) associated with these goals at the unit and college levels.
