Climate Survey Part 5: Workplace Environment
This report addresses questions regarding work environment, satisfaction with supervision, work-life balance, and treatment. A notable aspect of this report is how pandemic related challenges impacted the experiences of employees. The complexities, variances, and nuances of each of these roles - staff, faculty, and graduate students - has provided us with a very in-depth report, and we encourage you to engage with the tools provided as we strategically use these results to build a more inclusive and equitable UMass community.
The UMass Land Acknowledgement
In a year-long consultative and deeply collaborative process with respected advisors from local Tribal Nations, the UMass Native Advisory Council co-developed this campus Land Acknowledgement.
This Acknowledgement affirms our campus connection and relationship to the land the campus is built upon and our continued connection to the Nations who were the original inhabitants and caretakers of this land.
The Land Acknowledgement also affirms our connection and responsibility to the 82 Native nations west of the Mississippi whose homelands were sold through the Morrill Act of 1862.
