Share Your Voice through Campus Climate Survey

April 2, 2022

This week, St. John Fisher College will launch its Campus Climate Survey to all faculty, staff, and students to better understand perceptions of the College’s climate and level of support for diversity and equity.

The survey, which will be sent via email to employees and students on Wednesday, March 30, takes about 15 minutes to complete and is completely anonymous. The survey will remain open until Tuesday, April 26, and reminders will be sent weekly.

There will be incentives offered for students, faculty, and staff who complete the survey, including Fisher hoodies, hats, shirts, pants, and sweatshirts, and 40 chances to win Cardinal Cash.

The survey is administered by the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) Diversity and Equity Campus Climate Survey, and helps colleges and universities improve support, policies, and practices in a number of areas.

 “It is essential for Fisher community members to feel comfortable to safely and honestly participate in the Campus Climate Survey,” said Yantee Slobert, director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs. “The results of the survey will be sent directly to the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium, an outside vendor, who will ensure personally identifying information is removed before the collected information is sent back to the campus. Everyone’s voices, truths, and campus experiences should be accurately reported so we can identify important areas of improvement and make positive changes.”

The Campus Climate Survey Committee includes Yantee Slobert, Marlowe Washington, Valerie Benjamin, Kristin Anderson, and Meg Flaherty. For questions, email campusclimate@courageousconversations.net.
