Why the YC Employee Engagement Satisfaction Survey is important to the college overall and to the YC Way/culture shift in particular

The survey is important because employees are important! We need to know what employees are thinking in order to improve the working environment. We want to know what we can celebrate as well as what we can improve.

The District Governing Board requires that "the President shall not cause or allow a workplace environment that is unfair, disrespectful, or unsafe." The survey has questions designed to help us determine if we are meeting this end.

How the data is handled by PACE

The PACE Climate Survey is our selected survey of choice. The survey is administered out of the National Initiative for Leadership and Institutional Effectiveness at North Carolina State University (NILIE).

The PACE Climate Survey is based on an evidence-based model that demonstrates that the leadership of an institution motivates four climate factors–institutional structure, supervisory relationship, teamwork, and student focus–that impact student success and institutional effectiveness. Thus, as an employee survey, the PACE asks respondents to evaluate the institution on the climate factors using a five-point scale.

Are respondents truly anonymous?

The survey is administered by NILIE. The survey is taken through a designated link and results are compiled by the company. Individual results are not available to YC. Instead, a comprehensive report is provided.
