Cardinal Climate Survey - 2019

In fall 2019, the campus community had the opportunity to BE HEARD (again) and share perceptions and experiences through a campus-wide climate survey.

This study is one part of SVSU’s ongoing efforts to foster a healthy and inclusive environment for all members of the university community. SVSU is using the findings from this study to develop new actions or initiatives, or enhance existing efforts, that will improve the working, living and learning environments here.

The survey results were analyzed by Dr. Sue Rankin from Rankin and Associates, the external consultant who developed the survey in conjunction with the Campus Climate Core Advisory Group. The executive summary, presentation slides and recording from the virtual town hall meeting and full report are available below to download, if you wish.
