Findings from a survey conducted last fall about job satisfaction at Montana State University will be presented at the Campus Climate ADVANCE Data Charrette, set for 3-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, in the Leigh Lounge in the SUB. Members of the campus and Bozeman communities who are 21 years of age and older are invited to attend.
At the charrette, findings from the survey will be presented through a series of poster presentations, where individuals will also have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. MSU President Waded Cruzado will deliver the charrette's opening remarks.
Participants are invited to stop by the charrette anytime between 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Wine and cheese will be available.
More than 350 MSU tenure-track faculty, department heads and administrators participated in the baseline job satisfaction survey, which was developed and conducted by the ADVANCE Social Science Research Team.
Supported by a National Science Foundation Institutional Transformation grant, ADVANCE Project Tracs at MSU is designed to transform the climate for women in science, technology, engineering and math fields, as well as social and behavioral sciences, according to Jessi Smith, special assistant to the provost and director of ADVANCE at MSU. Smith added that by providing support for women in these fields, the project aims to spur institution-wide cultural transformation, bringing appreciation of diversity to all corners of campus and creating programs to help faculty, staff and students integrate work and life, cultivate community and achieve their fullest potential.
