Employee Engagement


The University of North Carolina is committed to providing a quality work environment for its faculty and staff so that all employees of the University can be successful in the work they accomplish for the State of North Carolina.

The UNC System Strategic Plan includes a goal to foster diverse and excellent institutions. Part of this goal is to gain clearer measurements for success that will assist us with the recruitment, retention, and development of the most talented and diverse workforce possible. Toward this goal, each institution in the UNC System over the next five years will participate in an annual system-wide Employee Engagement Survey to gather input from faculty and staff about workplace engagement. 

The survey will be conducted by ModernThink LLC, an independent research and consulting firm that specializes in higher education climate assessment. On January 29, the online survey will be distributed directly from ModernThink to our full-time faculty and staff.   Topics include collaboration, communication, supervision, workplace culture, benefits, and related subjects. The data we receive through this program will help us to build and sustain an environment that attracts and retains world-class faculty and staff. 

Survey participation is voluntary and completely confidential. Only ModernThink will have access to individual employee responses so that our institution cannot trace results back to individuals. 

Over the summer, we will receive and share reports that summarize the data provided so that we can recognize our successes and begin to address concerns that most directly impact and influence our workplace culture.

More information about the survey will be distributed by email in the coming weeks. Additionally, more details about the survey, reporting, confidentiality and frequently asked questions are available at  If you have questions, please contact Kay Faircloth, Associate Director for Human Resources at Fayetteville State University at
