Annual Surveys 

FAS is committed to gathering valuable, anonymous feedback about customer satisfaction and employee engagement in their annual surveys. Based on the data received, subdivisions are expected to include thoughtful, achievable action items in their annual goal setting. This allows the division as a whole to work toward prioritizing initiatives that improve service quality and processes.

Campus Climate

CSUSM is committed to excellence in Campus Climate, in recognition that our collective strength and fulfillment of campus strategies is a function of our campus community's ability to work together as a team. In partnership with the CSUSM Culture: Working Together document, Campus Climate seeks to appreciate and value the campus community, recognize accomplishments, and celebrate successes.

In order to build camaraderie, mutual respect, and trust among all members of our campus community, FAS oversees Campus Climate initiatives to benefit CSUSM employees. Explore those programs below.
