NDU Instructions for the Defense Organizational Climate Survey (DEOCS)

26 March through 26 April 2019

The DEOCS is conducted by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI). Your participation is voluntary and your responses will be anonymous. See details by expanding the items below:

This survey is one of the tools by which I look to hear your concerns and also your ideas about how to make our workplace the best it can be. Your feedback from past years' surveys has been instrumental in helping us to direct our limited resources against the most urgent priorities that you've identified; thanks to your feedback, there are great examples of progress and specific positive results in all areas of University operations.

It's important that we hear your feedback! Thank you in advance for participating in the DEOCS and for providing candid responses. I look forward to hearing from you, and to the opportunity to help improve our University.
