CWRU assessing research environment in emailed survey; check your inbox

The Case Western Reserve University Office of Research and Technology Management (ORTM) and Office of Institutional Research are assessing the university’s research environments with a voluntary, anonymous survey. 

In order to ensure independence, the Bureau of Sociological Research (BOSR) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is executing the work.

“We need everyone’s help with this because the topic is so very important,” Michael Oakes, senior vice president for research and technology management, said. “It’s vital we hear from everyone.”

He urges those who have not yet completed the survey to do so. A reminder will be emailed shortly, with a link and instructions.

CWRU is committed to providing a welcoming, safe and productive research environment that is free from harassment, discrimination, sexual misconduct and retaliation. The survey will help the university to measure its success, identify areas in need of more attention and track progress .

BOSR has sent the survey to individuals who have worked in an environment that’s been partially or fully supported by federal funding during the past few years at CWRU.
