Faculty Attrition Study

PI: Christine Maidl Pribbenow

Study Description

In 2005, WISELI performed an exit interview study to determine "Why Women Leave." We interviewed women faculty who left UW-Madison STEM departments from 2001 through 2004. Experience with that study led to a request from the Office of the Provost to implement an exit interview study for all UW-Madison faculty who leave, on an annual basis. Beginning in 2007 and working with the Office of the Provost and Human Resources, Dr. Pribbenow identified and interviewed faculty faculty who left the UW-Madison in the prior year for reasons other than retirement. In 2008/09, the Faculty Attrition Study was expanded to include retirees. This study will be implemented annually as long as the Provost's Office requests.
