Preparing for Next Steps: Formal Results Presentation

On October 3, 2018, Rankin & Associates will formally unveil the results of the Campus Climate Study. This university-wide assessment of learning, living and working at Santa Clara University was conducted in Winter quarter 2018 (January 23 - February 27, 2018).

This climate study effort was a direct response to the recommendations from the Blue Ribbon Commission on Diversity and Inclusion and the Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion. The climate study offered members of the university community (faculty, staff, students) the opportunity to describe their personal experience and observations, and to offer suggestions for change to help enhance the campus climate at Santa Clara.

The goals of the climate study were to:

  • Identify successful initiatives
  • Uncover challenges facing members of our university community
  • Develop strategic initiatives to build upon the successes and address the challenges

All Santa Clara faculty, staff and students (undergraduate and graduate) were encouraged to participate in this confidential study that was conducted by an external consultant, Rankin & Associates Consulting, which has conducted more than 170 similar studies at other institutions across the nation, including nine Jesuit institutions. The findings from this survey will help Santa Clara to create and maintain a healthy, inclusive environment for all.

The executive summary, final report and presentation of the survey results will be available to faculty, staff and students with a Santa Clara University login and password on Thursday, October 4, 2018.
