Survey FAQ

Who do I contact if I have questions about the survey and results?

For questions regarding the 2018 staff survey, please email Trevor and Jen at or contact your school or VP area survey liaison.

Taking the Survey

Share your voice! We want to hear how connected you feel to the university, and what would improve and enhance your Cardinal at Work experience.


Eligible staff groups include exempt, non-exempt, bargaining unit, non-academic, Athletics coaches, academic librarians and academic research staff (including SLAC) hired on or before September 4, 2018.

The survey takes 15-20 minutes to complete during your normal work hours.

To protect your confidentiality, the survey is administered by CultureIQ, an independent organization that merged with CEB Workforce Surveys & Analytics Division.

Protecting Your Confidentiality

Yes. Stanford does not have access to any individual responses and is not interested in identifying individual responses. To ensure confidentiality, results will not be reported on any group with fewer than (5) responses.

Stanford employees represent diverse experiences, ideals and cultures. We want to hear about the employee experience for all staff communities including those not broadly represented. To protect your results, for demographic variables including those considered sensitive (such as age, gender and race/ethnicity) to be reported, there must be at least twenty (20) respondents in a group and at least five (5) respondents for any specific demographic value.

Survey Results & Impact

Each school or VP area has one or more survey liaisons who partner with their leaders to review results from their specific organizations.
