Campus Climate Survey

Background

In November 2007 then-Chancellor David Wilson appointed the UW Colleges Diversity Leadership Committee (DLC), chaired by Ron Gulotta (Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology and Sociology, UW-Waukesha), to oversee implementation of the survey.

The Campus Climate Survey was offered at each of the thirteen University of Wisconsin Colleges campuses, UW Colleges Online, and the UW Colleges Central Administration on March 31-April 18, 2008. The survey was open to everyone on campus and in the Colleges - students, staff, and faculty - and everyone was strongly encouraged to take part.

The survey was confidential and was completed either online or in written form. Answers were strictly confidential and anonymous. Each campus received reports of group results only, and no individual was identified in the results.

Within the UW System, five UW institutions elected to participate in the first year of a broad-based campus climate assessment led by the national research team of Rankin & Associates (R&A). For more information regarding the UW System Diversity Climate Assessment Project visit: www.uwsa.edu/vpacad/climate/.

To provide a confidential response to any of the campus climate reports or to the UW Colleges Aggregate Final Report, please use the following email address, which goes to UW Colleges Diversity Leadership Committee Chair Ron Gulotta (Associate Professor, Sociology, UW-Waukesha). Any comments or responses shall be kept in the strictest confidence by Dr. Gulotta:

A welcoming and inclusive climate is grounded in respect, is nurtured by continuous attention to climate, and by open dialogue. In order to better learn how life is experienced day-to-day on campus, the UW Colleges participated in the UW System Diversity Climate Study with the UW Colleges Campus Climate Survey.
