Rate My Administrator 2022 Published

UHPA members can now download the “2021 UHPA Rate My Administrator Surveys” PDF. Nearly 700 faculty members participated system-wide across all campuses. 

Summary of Findings

Market Trends Pacific – the company hired to conduct the survey now in its second year, summarized the results of the 2022 report thusly: 

“In this second year of fielding the Rate My Administrator survey, overall scores generally declined slightly, with larger changes (both positive and negative) at the campus level. In some cases, campus scores decreased substantially, which may merit further attention and/or monitoring over time.”

The summary report contains:

  • Highest and lowest scoring statements
  • Average score for each statement
  • Average scores by campus
  • Both overall satisfaction by average by campus
  • Likely to recommend
  • Profile of respondents

The results of this survey will be shared with the UH Administration. We intend to annually repeat this process and publish trends over time.

UHPA’s long-term goal is to use these trendlines on faculty feedback to identify where administrative performance has been demonstrated as well as where it requires attention and improvement.

UHPA Endorses House Candidates

The Legislative Action Committee interviewed four candidates for the State House of Representatives.  Three are first time candidates and one is a second time candidate.  The LAC recommended with the Executive Committee approval that UHPA endorse all four candidates.

  • Andrew Garrett, House District 22
  • Darius Kila, House District 44
  • Rachele Lamosao, House District 36
  • Jenna Takenouchi, House District 27

The LAC was impressed with these candidates and their understanding of both academic concerns of faculty as well as the economic concerns of the University.  They did their homework prior to the interview by preparing to respond to the House Candidate Questionnaire provided them by the LAC.  This included the importance of our Community Colleges.

UHPA continues to endorse Speaker Scott Saiki, Gregg Takayama, Della Au Belatti and Stacelynn Eli.  Their strong support for UHPA faculty is greatly appreciated.

From HomeStreet Bank: Home Equity vs. HELOC

 

Our UHPA member benefits partner HomeStreet Bank has published its October message: 

Home Equity vs. HELOC

Deciding whether or not to use the equity in your home to
pay off unsecured debt and/or make home
improvements can be a difficult financial decision.
Second mortgages come in two basic forms: home equity
loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) – both of
which offer the potential for low APRs and streamlined
monthly payments. Click here to learn if one of these is
right for you!
