Climate Survey

The Campuswide Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Climate Assessment data collection contains the results of a 2016 sample survey of University of Michigan (U-M) – Ann Arbor, faculty, staff, and students meant to represent the full diversity of the community and to capture information and perceptions on demographics, climate, institutional commitment and inclusive and equitable treatment, departmental norms, intergroup interactions, and discrimination.

The survey instruments were developed collaboratively by the U-M Office of the Provost, U-M’s Survey Research Center, and administered by SoundRocket, an external social science survey research company, as a web survey. The purpose of this study was to serve as a baseline for understanding the Ann Arbor campus climate, to help inform current and future planning, and as a benchmark against which to measure change over time.

Variables in the collection describe age, gender and gender identity, race/ethnicity, religious affiliation, disability status, campus safety, rating of campus climate, intergroup interaction, discriminatory events, composite rating scores, and more.
