Journal Articles – University Climate Surveys

Former Prairies Chair, Dr. Annemieke Farenhorst and her team, lead the first University Climate Survey amongst faculty in natural science and engineering fields at select universities in their region in 2018. Atlantic Chair Dr. Franz-Odendaal tailored the survey for her region and ran it in 2018 as well. These surveys aim to understand the perceptions and experiences faculty members have of their workplace. The survey has also been run in the Ontario region by former Chair Dr. Catherine Mavriplis and the results are being analyzed. Below are the published articles based on these surveys:
