survey return to the workplace

Dear VPRS team,

It's hard to believe that we are almost at the one-year mark of my tenure as the Vice Provost for Research & Scholarship, and we have spent all of that time working remotely. First, I want to say how proud I am of the dedication, creativity and resilience of this team.

We have accomplished so much in the hardest circumstances imaginable, and I am excited to see what we can do as we continue to build a culture of holistic and collaborative support to research and scholarship.

As the institutional leader for the COVID-19 response, I know intimately the challenges that we will face, and want to gauge your feelings about a potential return to in-person work.

The pandemic has taught us all that there are many arrangements and ways of working that still make for a productive workplace, and most importantly, for a happy and supported team. Your answers will help us as we try to envision what that new workplace might look like.

Of course, we welcome your general feedback and are always here to answer questions or hear your concerns. Please click on the survey link here to submit your anonymous response.

All my best,


Erin Kobetz, PhD, MPH
Vice Provost for Research + Scholarship
Associate Director, Population Sciences and Cancer Disparity, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center
