DSU has Drop in Staff Satisfaction, Withholds Survey Results

Dickinson State University has room for improvement, according to the results of a recent internal campus quality survey.

The anonymous employee survey and subsequent report by Performance Horizons was completed and sent to DSU last month, according to the Wisconsin consulting firm. An edited version of the full report was released to The Press from DSU on Thursday, despite requests for the full report.

Out of 254 DSU employees — all of which were eligible to participate in the survey conducted in October — 96 completed the questionnaire. From the previous survey in 2010, the percentage of individuals who reported they were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their employment at DSU dropped from 70 percent to 56 percent, the lowest combined percentage since the bi-annual surveys began in 2002.
