February 2014 - Campus Climate Survey
All faculty and staff have received an invitation via email to participate in the Campus Climate Survey.

2013-14 Faculty and Academic Staff Salary Study
The 2013-14 Faculty and Academic Staff Salary Study is now available on the Information Portal. The annual salary studies are just one example of the numerous actions UW-Stout has taken to address faculty and staff salary issues over the past two decades. The current study's purpose is multi-fold and involves the following:
2014 Engagement Sessions
The 2014 engagement sessions will be held on August 25, 2014. All faculty and staff are encouraged to attend and will receive an invitation to participate, along with their room assignment, in August. The topic of the engagement sessions will be to identify UW-Stouts goal statements for the next strategic plan, called FOCUS 2020. Potential ideas for these goal statements will be initially generated at a Stakeholder Visioning Session in July and then further refined at the engagement sessions. It is anticipated that the FOCUS 2020 goal statements will be finalized in fall 2014.
Fall 2013 Quick Facts Brochure
The Fall 2013 Quick Facts Brochure is now available on the web. A printed brochure is no longer available but can be printed from the website. The brochure provides important facts about the university which includes UW-Stout's mission statement, vision statement, enduring goals and FOCUS 2015 goals as well as a list of the undergraduate and graduate programs offered. Statistics concerning enrollment, faculty and staff, employment, student costs, Foundation scholarships, the library, student activities, athletics and alumni are also included.
Supplemental Compensation Program
The Chancellor has approved the recommendations from the Supplemental Compensation Program Funding Options Committee and a $500,000 base-funded supplemental compensation program will be implemented on July 1, 2014. Additional information can be found online (intranet log-in required).
This month ARC will be administering the ETS Proficiency Profile to a small sample of seniors in classes in all four colleges. About 200 incoming freshmen take the same test in Fall semester. Results of these assessments help UW-Stout leaders gauge how students are performing in four core skill areas: critical thinking, reading, writing and mathematics.
