Cardinal Climate Survey - 2019

Cardinal Climate Survey

Take the Survey My voice matters! Message from the President Participation Prizes Learn more....


Once again, Saginaw Valley State University is partnering with Rankin & Associates to develop the 2019 Campus Climate Survey. This survey will allow the campus community a vital way to share their thoughts and experiences. It is crucial to the mission of the University that we hear from as many campus community members as possible. This means YOU! Make your voice heard! Outcomes of this survey will directly impact campus climate initiatives as we go forward. Results of the 2014 Campus Climate Survey resulted in innovative and data-driven programming intended to open dialogue and increase understanding on campus.

A few examples are:

  • Cultural Competency Dialogue Sessions
  • The PRIDE Center @ SVSU
  • Sexual Assault Prevention Training
  • A more inclusive Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Statement

Many of your colleagues are working to make sure that the 2019 survey reaches each of you and that you have the opportunity to participate. Look for more information in the weeks and months to come.

Why Conduct A Climate Study?

Our goal is that we have a welcoming and inclusive campus for all students, faculty and staff.  >> Learn more

Why Does It Matter?

A welcoming and inclusive campus only happens in a climate that is grounded in mutual respect, nurtured by honest dialogue, and evidenced by a pattern of civil interaction.  >> Learn more
