Both Cornell’s Academic Work Life (AWL) Survey and the Cornell Employee Survey and were administered in October-November of 2016.
The AWL survey included all employees in academic positions hired prior to November 1, 2015 and holding at least a 50% appointment. There are three major constituencies in the AWL survey: tenured and tenure-track faculty, academic professionals, and academic short-term employees. A total of 1,602 academics completed some portion of the survey, yielding an overall response rate of 55%. Response rates differed significantly across titles, with 60% of faculty, 55% of academic professionals (excluding librarians), and 40% of academic short term responding.
