Spring Term Adjunct Faculty Survey Coming – Watch Your Webster University Email
In addition to the Coffee & Conversations (Town Halls) hosted by the president, provost, and the college/school deans, a survey is sent to St. Louis area adjunct faculty to solicit candid (anonymous) feedback.
We keep many of the questions to same to spot changes – improvements or areas of concern – and respond accordingly. The survey explores adjunct faculty opinions about university communications with them and other issues of importance. Please keep any eye out for the Spring 2019 survey, which should arrive in adjunct faculty inboxes any day. Take a moment to fill it and findings from it will be shared at the next Coffee & Conversations in Fall Term 2019 and on websteradjunctinfo.org.
