Campus Climate Survey

Campus Climate Survey

January 24, 2014

UCLA has begun its participation in a University of California systemwide Campus Climate Study about faculty, staff and student experiences with diversity and inclusion. It’s an opportunity for the University community to share what is working well and also where improvements can be made in maintaining a welcoming environment on campus.

The survey—which will poll students, faculty and staff at all 10 UC campuses, as well as the Office of the President, the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory—is believed to be the largest of its kind ever conducted in American higher education. More importantly, it aligns with UCLA's efforts to maintain a campus environment that is respectful, tolerant, civil and fair, as enshrined in UCLA’s Principles of Community.

The online survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete, and supervisors have been asked to grant release time to employees in order to encourage full participation, consistent with meeting operational needs. Participation in the survey is voluntary and confidentiality will be maintained to the highest degree permitted by law, University policy, and the technology used. University personnel will not have access to any individual responses. 

For those who don’t have access to a computer, copies of the survey are available in the reception area of Campus Human Resources or Healthcare Human Resources in the Wilshire Center.

Survey takers who answer at least half of the questions will be automatically entered into a random drawing for prizes such as two $5,000 research grants and five $2,000 professional development grants, to name a few. The deadline to complete the survey is February 22, 2013.
