Surveys and data collection
Year: 
2013
The purpose of this survey was to better understand why individuals accept or turn down offers of tenured/tenure-track faculty employment at the UVa. Specifically, all respondents were asked to rate their experience with the interview process, the quality of the offer they received from UVa, and the importance of various attributes of the position to their final decision. Individuals who declined the offer of employment at UVa were asked about the offer they did accept and whether there was anything the University could have done to change their decision.
