Four Years Later: Measuring Progress on Campus Inclusivity

Forthcoming Longitudinal Data from the 2017 Climate Assessment Surveys to be Compared to the 2013 Climate Assessment Survey Findings

Next month, Institute Diversity and Academic Effectiveness will start conducting climate surveys to gauge the Institute’s progress on building an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environment for the campus community. 

The findings from the 2017 Climate Assessment Surveys will provide longitudinal data that will be analyzed and compared to the results from the Institute’s 2013 Climate Assessment Surveys.

“The climate assessment survey comparisons will help us measure progress toward achieving the goals in our strategic plan and inform the Institute’s leadership about our strengths and opportunities to improve efforts with supporting a culture of collegiality, close collaboration, and professional development,” said Archie Ervin, vice president for Institute Diversity.

Beginning the week of November 13, 2017, faculty and staff will receive an email that includes a link to their respective online survey. The survey should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete, and participation is completely voluntary.

Students will receive a climate assessment survey email during spring semester 2018.

“On behalf of Institute Diversity and Academic Effectiveness, thank you for your time to complete this survey, as your feedback is greatly valued,” added Ervin.
