This year, we are working with the Michigan State University (MSU) Office for Survey Research to gather feedback about the leaders in our organization and our culture as a whole. You have received two emails from Karen Clark in the MSU Office for Survey Research, inviting you to take part in the 2017 MSU Extension Employee Feedback Survey. This survey is a combination of the administrative leadership feedback survey we’ve done each year and the culture surveys we began two years ago. From your responses, we hope to hear what you have to say about the people who hold leadership positions in our organization: institute directors, associate institute directors, district coordinators, the associate director and myself. How are we doing? What are we doing well? Where could we improve or grow? We also hope to continue to look at our organizational culture and grow the areas that you identify as needing growth. Just remember to submit your thoughts by Wednesday, Sept. 20. Thank you for investing time in building our organization and our future.
