Earlier this month, Augusta University kicked off a campus-wide diversity climate study administered online by Campus Climate Surveys LLC.
“This is an important step in helping to ensure that we advance diversity, equity and inclusion across our institution,” said President Brooks A. Keel, PhD. “At Augusta University, we seek to create an environment where all employees and students can be fully engaged, feel safe, respected, and be able to thrive. Understanding our campus’ climate is key to learning where we may need to do more work to strengthen our ongoing policies and initiatives.”
The survey results will be used to identify strengths and opportunities related to diversity, equity and inclusion for the entire campus community. A link to the survey was sent via email Oct. 6. All administrators, staff, students and faculty are strongly encouraged to complete the survey, which will be available online through Nov. 3.
No personal identifying information will be collected from survey participants. Campus Climate Surveys LLC is a sister company to Potomac Publishing Inc., publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the largest diversity and inclusion magazine in higher education today.
“Every voice at Augusta University matters, and we want to hear yours!” said Augusta University’s Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Tiffany Townsend. “We appreciate everyone taking the time for this brief survey as we look to shape the future of our institution. Your input is vital in this work.”
