Women’s Group to Identify Programming Needs
Alison Olin (November7, 2003)
Council of Women’s Groups/Women’s Concerns Committee
is seeking input and information on areas that might
be of concern to women. We are interested in women’s
experiences and needs related to the current campus
climate and are distributing a survey to all women employed
by the University. As members of the women’s community
at UAlbany, we feel a woman’s viewpoint may differ from
that of male counterparts. Participation in this study
is voluntary — you are not required to answer any question(s)
with which you are uncomfortable. Your responses are
vital to this purpose and your confidentiality is assured.
The committee will not reveal any of your answers or
reveal the fact that you participated in the survey.
survey will be announced in Today@UAlbany and will be
available on the Web, and via e-mail or hard copy. Results
of the survey will be used by the joint councils to
develop future programming (examples: stress reduction
and/or sexual harassment workshops, etc.) and/or resource
materials. We recognize that faculty/staff have already
been asked to respond to a Spring 2003 survey on race
relations, but we wish to go forward with this study
that targets women only from a wider range of job titles.
Questions may be directed to ALISON
