Formed in response to the reorganization effort, the Coordinating Committee for Change designed and implemented a survey to assess stakeholder reactions to the plan and planning process. Between December 11, 2017 and February 11, 2018, a total of 1156 students, employees, and other stakeholders participated in the survey. According to the results, 56.1% of stakeholders do not support the Chancellor’s plan for reorganization. Responses indicate that over half of participants feel unrepresented in the reorganization planning and discussion processes. Many participants expressed doubts concerning the merits of the plan and its consequences. Additionally, 56.7% ofparticipants questioned whether the Chancellor is acting in the best interests of SIU Carbondale. Overall, the survey results suggest that many SIU Carbondale stakeholders have serious reservations concerning the Chancellor’s reorganization plan.
