Campus Climate Survey on Diversity and Inclusion

Campus Climate Survey on Diversity and Inclusion


Dear Campus Community,

David Soltz

I am pleased to provide you with the link to the summary report for The Campus Climate at Bloomsburg University: A Snapshot from 2012. A total of 2,711 members of the campus community took the online survey. My thanks go to the Diversity and Inclusion Survey Leadership Team and the Office of Planning and Assessment for their work on preparing the survey, analyzing the data, interpreting the results and making recommendations.

There are a number of questions and issues raised from the Campus Climate survey results. In order to address these, I am forming a core group to focus on the survey’s recommendations. Members will come from areas that include academic, student affairs, social equity, assessment and planning and representation from the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force. They will be gathering additional input from the Bloomsburg University community as they develop and recommend action plans.

I am asking members to review the suggested action items under the following broad sections within the Campus Climate Summary Report:

  • Institutional structures to support a diverse, inclusive climate
  • Preventing and responding to inappropriate conduct
  • The curriculum and the co-curriculum
  • Instructional practice
  • Student support
  • Workplace equity
  • Community relationships
  • The Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan

Please take the time to read the Campus Climate at Bloomsburg University survey results. It is important that we all work toward making every member of the Bloomsburg University family feel valued.

Sincerely,

David Soltz

David L. Soltz, president
