We are pleased to announce the release of the Spring 2023 Campus Climate Survey Report! In February 2023, the university conducted a campus climate survey that asked students, faculty, staff, and administrators about their:
1. Perceptions of Willamette’s climate,
2. Perceptions of how Willamette supports diversity and equity, and
3. Experiences with discrimination and harassment at Willamette.
This report shares tables and graphics that summarize key aspects of the survey results. Surveys are just one instrument of an ongoing process to better understand and improve our campus climate. A core objective of this report is to prompt community discussions about campus climate.
The University DEI Committee has formed a subcommittee tasked with identifying key areas to continue the conversation with our community throughout the spring 2024 semester. These opportunities could look like forums, workshops, or focus groups and will be held to further dig into climate trends, learning more from community members on how to take care of our climate for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Please be on the lookout for an announcement of these sessions on our Salem and Portland campuses.
