OSU Energy Privatization Survey

On April 7th, 2017 (following a Senate vote three days earlier), the OSU Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve a 50-year energy agreement with ENGIE-Axiom consortium that effectively privatizes OSU’s energy infrastructure.

Concerns regarding both the substance of the agreement as well as the procedure by which it was arrived at have been documented elsewhere, including the Columbus Dispatch and the AboutOSU news and commentary website.  The goal of this survey was to record OSU faculty opinion on issues surrounding the agreement.

The survey ran from April 21 to May 14, 2017. 2,039 faculty of the ASC, ENG, BUS, and LAW colleges were invited to participate, and we received 480 completed responses.

The summary appears below. As with our previous surveys, a PowerPoint presentation as well as a compilation of the complete set of responses is available for previewing or download in our document repository (linked here).

In the interests of further illuminating the data associated with these surveys, we have added graphical cross-tabulations associated to all three. For convenient reference we list them here, with links to the page in which they appear:

*) ASC Academic Wellness Survey results by rank (linked here)

*) ASC Financial Wellness Survey results by rank (linked here)

*) OSU Energy Privatization Survey results by rank (linked here)

*) OSU Energy Privatization Survey results by college (linked here)

 

For those interested in evaluating and analyzing the data for themselves, the spreadsheets for all three surveys are available for download (for the first two surveys, you will want to go to the subfolder labeled “Spreadsheets”, then open or download the zipped folders for either the summary or complete responses data).
