Thank-you for participating in the professional development and career mobility survey for faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows. We had a very strong overall response rate of 10.3% (1129) respondents. The breakdown of responses by broad stakeholder group is: 



Next Steps

  1. We are in the process of analysing the data and will share a summary as soon as the analysis is complete.
  2. We are convening focus groups in the fall to gain a deeper understanding of the results and obtain in-depth, qualitative information on your experiences.

If you would like to participate in a focus group and have not already indicated your interest, please complete this form. In particular, we need more volunteers from Faculty and other Academic Staff. We will contact you when the schedule is developed.


This was a very comprehensive survey and therefore quite lengthy. We are very appreciative of the time you have taken to ensure we have your clarity on your needs and experiences. Your input is very valuable and, along with the best practice and emerging trends research, will contribute to framing recommendations for how the university advances the goals described in Objectives 15 and 3, For the Public Good as well as the joint union/management initiative on Support Staff Career Progression.
