UBC has offered staff and faculty entrance and exit surveys for eight years. The feedback gathered from these surveys is important because it provides the University with insights into why faculty and staff join UBC, and why they choose to leave. This information helps support decisions about priorities and initiatives that impact the faculty and staff experience at UBC.
To improve the entrance and exit user experience, we have updated the survey questionnaires and moved the surveys to a secure third-party platform located in Canada.
If you have questions about the surveys, please contact email@example.com.
