Members of the University of Wyoming community have an opportunity to provide input on development of a campus climate survey during three town-hall meetings this week.
The survey will be conducted in the spring semester to collect baseline data on the attitudes, behaviors and experiences of faculty, staff and students as they live and work at UW to assess the campus environment and culture. It will gather data not covered by either the student sexual assault survey administered to students last spring or the “Great Colleges” employee satisfaction survey administered last spring, such as discrimination and harassment based on ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation and other protected categories.
The Council on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is hosting the town-hall meetings to seek input in developing questions for the survey, as well as to answer any questions people might have about the survey. The meetings are:
-- Today (Monday, Oct. 22), from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union East Yellowstone Ballroom.
-- Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 2-3 p.m. in Room 105 of the Classroom Building.
-- Thursday, Oct. 25, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the Wyoming Union East Yellowstone Ballroom.
In November, a subcommittee will conduct targeted outreach to different campus constituent groups for additional feedback. Beginning in December, the Campus Climate Survey Subcommittee will work with The NCHERM Group LLC to develop the survey. Around spring break, the survey will be launched on campus.
This survey will assist in understanding the climate of the campus and identify critical issues that need immediate attention. It also will assist in more fully identifying strategies for future diversity and inclusion work, says UW Chief Diversity Officer Emily Monago.
