The university is seeking feedback from staff and faculty about their experiences working this past year, to help inform planning for a safe return to campus.

While there are still many unknowns about how the pandemic and vaccine rollout will progress, planning is underway for the Fall 2021 semester.

The Workplace and Employee Experience Working Committee is seeking feedback from faculty and staff on their work experience over the past year as the university considers how to safely return to McMaster while upholding the established principles from spring 2020.

“We are hoping to collect as much data as possible, to gain a true sense of how faculty and staff are feeling,” says committee co-chair Susan Mitchell, director of faculty administration at the DeGroote School of Business.

“This feedback will help us make the best recommendations to reflect the needs of our community.”

Please provide your input and ideas before March 31 in this anonymous feedback form, which will be used to inform recommendations for the fall. There will be additional opportunities for faculty and staff to inform decision making in the coming months.

The health and well-being of students, faculty and staff continues to drive all decisions, and the university will continue to follow the guidance and direction from the province and Hamilton Public Health.

The university is committed to making the best decisions for the McMaster community and will share the information collected and recommendations in the coming weeks.
