Dear Saginaw Valley State University FA Members,
It has been a time of great change at the national, state, and local levels. Because of this, I invite and encourage you to participate in “The Cardinal Climate Survey."
The goals of this project are to determine what we do successfully, uncover any challenges we may face in our university community, so we may work together to conceive a plan that celebrates the things we do well and confront our shortcomings.
Since the last time a climate survey was performed the university has evolved in many ways. So much so, that reexamining how all our campus community members experience their time spent here is not only fitting, but important to the well-being of the university as a whole.
Great measures have been taken to ensure confidentiality and to provide every member of our institution the ability to respond. This is a cause our new administration sincerely believes will benefit the future of our institution.
What I ask of you is a 20-30 minute commitment to fill out the survey when it comes to you electronically.
I truly believe that through your participation the university will create an environment of respect and success for all. I thank you in advance for your participation.
Shaun E. Bangert
