Help Us Assess Campus Climate for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the UI

Dear Members of the University Community:     

The first University of Iowa Faculty and Staff Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Survey is currently underway.  The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and it is open until February 28, 2018.  You can take it here:

As we endeavor to make the University of Iowa an institution where every faculty and staff member thrives, we seek a more thorough understanding of our campus environment. This survey is divided into three sections that evaluate your personal experience on campus; your beliefs and values related to diversity; and your perception of the institutional commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

The Charter Committee on Diversity, Chief Diversity Office, and Provost's Office collaborated to develop the survey.  Your responses will help us:

 Gain a systematic understanding of campus climate.  

  1. Establish a baseline for measuring change over time.
  2. Advance our work on current strategic plan objectives and shape future planning.        
  3. Ensure that people of all social identities feel welcome and supported in their professional development and advancement. 
  4. Inform the first UI Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Action Plan.               

I strongly encourage you to complete the 2018 Faculty and Staff Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Survey. All responses are confidential and will be reported in aggregate.  Survey participants will be entered to win one of one hundred $50 cash cards. 

Thank you for supporting the University's commitment to campus diversity, equity and inclusion!
