    Figuring out by now that "university-assigned workspace" means office (or it should - if it means something else, I don't like the euphemism), it's not an issue of proximity for me, but first of all confidentiality for students, and second of all peace and quiet to get work done. (I see now, this is the next question...)

    I worked for several years in a cubicle in Hendrickson and it was truly a disaster. Students were very upset at the lack of confidential private space and I found I could not do my writing or grading with all the conversations going on.
    Selected: ARRAY(0x16b85a4)
    A full closed door office crucial, one that accommodate all of these needs. At present, I don't have the room for the kind of file cabinets I need, but the top three needs expressed here are met.
    Selected: ARRAY(0x16b8c34)
    Quiet and private space is necessary for any faculty member who advises students. In education, we do a lot of distance courses and we need quiet private areas to do this. If they are not available, we will have to conduct our business off campus.
    Selected: ARRAY(0x16b6ff4)
    Again, survey tool only allows entry for one question. I'd answer 1 to all except personal file cabinets and for that I'd answer 3
    Selected: ARRAY(0x16bb1bc)
    all of these items are pretty equal in importance.
    Selected: ARRAY(0x16c00ac)
    All of the above are top priorities (except I do not have much in the way of specialized professional equipment). I do not see these as personal preferences, but as necessary components to my job.

    All of these are of about equal importance

    My laboratory, NSRL 203 lacks temperature control to the extent that my instrumentation is at risk. Too often do I find the temp in that room at 80 degrees or higher. Less frequently, as well as less threatening to my instrumentation, are periods of extreme cold (less than 65 degrees).

    I have switched offices three times in the four plus years I've been at UAS and feel this is the best fit for me. If I could change anything, it would definitely be the addition of a window with natural light, preferably with a view.

    Far from laboratory (Natural Science Labs are down the road a bit).
    Very close to noisy student use area.
    I do not have a nice view.
    It's SMALL comparatively.
    It's perfect.

    It's perfect for conferencing with students, colleagues or staff.

    matching furniture

    I like my current space
    A window that can help me keep the place cool and with fresh air.
    Better lighting
    Lighting other than fluorescent bulbs, or perhaps replacing them with full spectrum range bulbs (anti-SAD).
    proximity to central gathering place for colleagues
    Being further from the commotion
    A desirable view would make the office more inviting.
    Nothing - although it's a little small, I think it's almost perfect for my needs.
    Quiet. Sorry to keep harping on this, but it's impossible to concentrate when several other people are talking loudly.
    none wrt AD space
    A skylight
    Desk reconfiguration
    a different light source other than the overhead fluorescent lights
    Availability of a kitchen sink; washing dishes in the bathroom is nasty.
    desk and furniture that was designed to be used in an open room office
    Natural light.
    different lighting.
    It would help if I cleaned it up! Having a door or higher privacy wall would be nice but I am used to what I have.
    None
    updated overhead lighting or natural light
    I wish it opened into a common area. This would make the office feel more secure, it would allow me to keep my door open in winter and would allow for better air circulation, and would create a space to interact with colleagues over coffee breaks, etc.

    access: for students, to meeting areas, to classrooms, to shared facilities
    equitable distribution of good office space (I moved 6 times before landing in my office!)--altho' more shared social spaces--a real cafe, better food services with pleasant atmosphere--would rank a close second.
    Its fine as is
    A pub
    Storage for the misc. junk that gets stuffed in hallways, classrooms, offices, and every other available space!
    Clean rooms and meeting rooms-the rooms are dusty and the tables filthy
    a more comfortable coffee shop area. I would like to see more comfortable furniture near Spikes in the common space outside the library. That has the potential for an active meeting area but doesn't have a comfortable feel about it. It has a great view and could be much better with chairs and couches that would invite people sitting and talking.
    faculty lounge
    Common area (fridge, microwave) with seating for lunch.
    less construction.
    Faculty lounge.
    Having better parking and a campus that you have more than one entrance.
    More IT Bandwidth, more bandwidth, more bandwidth..........
    Ability to drive through the campus as was the case prior -- this would make it easier to spend more time with others.
    Open gathering areas like a kitchenette and student lounge "zones"
    Can't think of anything
    It would be great to have a meeting room for our department.
    Better eating options.
    A good place to eat, seriously. I never eat the Mourant cafeteria.
    natural full spectrum lighting
    I actually like the setup where I am now. I enjoy working in my department.
    Someplace I can eat, visit, and wash dishes (that does not have toilets)
    A proper, dedicated art gallery
    A faculty lounge and better food service.
    Faculty gathering place
    Less concrete outside, more green space. Have the faculty in one building, different floors for different departments.
    Adequate parking in maintained lots would be welcomed.
    A research laboratory space that is near both my office and teaching spaces.
    It is pretty sweet as it is
    Student union (student activity center), faculty lounge, accessible walk around lake.
    I am very fortunate to have such a nice office; I am definitely in the minority. I would love a few places to sit or eat lunch/snacks outdoors in a green or grassy area (NOT in the horrible bricked up space where greenery has been largely eliminated.
    better parking
    Separate areas for eating. Egan library has a great kitchen space with a table, couches, fridge, microwave and stove. And there is always coffee. It is a place where I can rest between classes. I would also love it if this space were available for use during class times so that I could do special cultural events with my students.
    an old time library room with a fireplace and soft chairs.
    Things that would be nice: student union type space with a fireplace; decent array of vending machines; not losing any more parking spaces.
    None
    standardization of furnishing finishes
    Break rooms / lunch rooms. Right now I generally end up eating lunch by myself. A convenient and comfortable break room would improve camaraderie.
    A faculty lounge / meeting space / presentation space would be great. However, if there is a decision to be made for available funds, individual offices for every faculty member should be available before any money is spent on any other improvements.
    more offices for faculty
    ?????????
    More natural opportunity to interact with other faculty on campus (like faculty lounge).
    Put in a pub

    don't teach online
    10 hours of teaching time are spent on campus. I do all my prep and grading for online teaching on campus as well, which amounts to the rest of the week spent on campus.
    It varies by semester.
    Currently I hold 3 distance classes per week from my office, plus additional review sessions and one-on-one distance sessions as needed. This can be from 4 to 10 hours per week.

    student access to faculty is underrated by university personnel, but it would significantly improve service, retention, and learning, all part of the UAS mission
    I bought a coffee maker a couple of years ago and now all is well
    The rooms need to be cleaned. We need better parking for those who come and go during the day.
    I have no complaints and think it is a lovely campus. I really enjoy my workspace and like being here. I know this report is going to UAS leadership and Faculty Senate; it should also be made available for everyone to see the results. What's the secret?
    I would like to make sure that there is sufficient faculty involvement in any workplace planning and decisions.
    Keep faculty in their private offices.
    We seem to have lots of money for physical plant, bricks, paving, etc. - but we can't get enough resources to conduct proper on-line teaching, sufficient IT resources, a lack of sufficient bandwidth, lack of sufficient support.
    It would be hard to improve on what I currently have...space to get things accomplished and meet with colleagues, students and staff and privacy whenever needed for the same.
    Can't think of anything that would apply to me. I really am quite happy with what I have. Really!
    Some of the faculty offices are not very good because of lighting, locking and proximity to colleagues.
    I am fortunate to have moved up the ranks to a private office with a window. Many faculty have interior offices with no windows or heat controls. Others have cubicles with no privacy. The least satisfying part of my job for the first 3 years was the idea of spending ANY time in my dreary office. I hope that decent faculty offices will be a priority in the future!
    A faculty lounge would be very nice.
    It would be nice to think that these opportunities to voice our space concerns are actually effective.
    Again, I am a little uneasy about the "university-assigned workspace" euphemism. If you are seriously considering something other than offices, I think it should be called by its name and discussed that way. If I have in any way contributed to a discussion that could end up with that kind of a result, I resent being misled into this survey.
    Group faculty offices by discipline Add faculty lounge for interdisciplinary interactions
    Maintaining private offices in order to teach, work in a scholarly manner and collaborate with others is important in the academic setting.
    I'm also concerned about the classroom shortage. Teaching discussion classes in the media room is counter-productive.
    Improved communication. Better planning and support with appropriate supplies when moving is necessary.
    We really need a kitchen space in Soboleff and the kitchen space that's available in the library in Egan needs to be advertised to faculty who teach in Egan.
    the windows could be washed a little more often.
    None
    Too many faculty are lacking adequate space for offices currently. As the number of students is expected to continue to grow, so too, should the space devoted to offices for faculty whose numbers will have to increase with student enrollment. At a minimum, all tenure-track and term faculty should have offices with doors that lock. Cubicles are adequate for graduate students. Cubicles are NOT adequate spaces for faculty.
    Each tenure track faculty needs to have, at the very least, secure, lockable, private offices.
    Faculty need private offices--even if they are smaller than currently provided. Cubicles or shared spaces are not acceptable.
