Message to UH Hilo Faculty from Chancellor Don Straney
You may remember the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo received National Science Foundation ADVANCE project funding to implement Exploring Diversity and Gender Equity (EDGE). The grant requires the project to conduct a survey to determine the campus climate regarding the recruitment, tenure, development, and promotion of faculty in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. We invite you to respond to the survey found at http://www.tfaforms.com/285965.
If you prefer to provide oral responses, you may do so by arranging an appointment with research administrator Terrilani Chong, at terrilan[at]hawaii.edu or 808-933-7659.
Participation in this survey is completely voluntary. You are free to skip questions or stop at any time. Survey data will be kept confidential. No personal identifying information will be included with the survey results.
The results of this survey will help UH Hilo create a campus that is sensitive to the needs of female faculty and supportive of equity for all faculty. We hope to continue our effective practices in recruiting, tenure, development, and promotion, and consider possible improvements.
For more information, contact Terrilani Chong at the above contact info. For information regarding your rights as a survey respondent, contact the UH Committee on Human Studies at uhirb[at]hawaii.edu or (808)956-5007.
