Survey shows College staff satisfied with jobs

The results of the 2008 Dartmouth College Staff Survey were released Monday, revealing that staff members at the College are generally satisfied with their positions, but would like to be more involved in the Dartmouth community. Overall, employees were pleased with the nature of their work and job security, and were least satisfied with salaries and opportunities for advancement.
