Add Your Voice: Complete Campus Cleaning Quality Survey
From Bryon K. Marshall, Facilities and College Safety: In the Fall of 2016, a Campus Cleaning Quality Survey was distributed among members of the college community. Results from that survey led to further action by forming a focus group, which reviewed the results and had productive conversations that brought awareness to a few key areas of concern and in need of improvement. This follow-up survey will ask if these areas of concern have improved over the last year. Subsequent questions will ask what issues or concerns are still present and need to be addressed. We thank you for your participation.  Please click to complete the survey here.
