Campus Climate Survey
Metropolitan State University of Denver invites all faculty, staff and students to complete the confidential 2021 Campus Climate Survey. The University has contracted with an outside vendor, Campus Climate Surveys LLC, to administer the surveys to assure confidentiality. You will receive an email directly from Campus Climate Surveys LCC inviting you to participate in the survey. The surveys will be accessible for those who need accommodations.
The Viewfinder Campus Climate Survey is a platform for employees and students to offer insight into their experiences with diversity and inclusion at MSU Denver. The survey will help University leadership to examine and understand the levels of belonging, respect, dialogue, and trust present in our campus community so we can identify strengths and opportunities related to diversity, equity, and inclusion and shape programs and policies accordingly. The information gathered will help University leaders build a more inclusive and equitable campus community and organizational culture.
The survey will be open through March 19, but all employees and students are strongly encouraged to complete the survey at their earliest convenience. Your responses are completely anonymous; thus, we urge you to be as candid as possible. If you have trouble accessing the survey, please contact Manuel Del Real, Ph.D., executive director, Hispanic-Serving Institution Initiatives, at email@example.com.
Your input is not only valuable, but essential to MSU Denver’s efforts to foster, cultivate, and sustain a welcoming, respectful and inclusive campus community that values each and everyone’s identities, abilities and potential. Hence, we are offering $25 and $40 gift cards to survey participants. Winners will be selected randomly throughout the survey period of March 1-19.
Thank you in advance for sharing your feedback and experiences and for helping build an even better and more successful MSU Denver. We look forward to compiling the results and sharing them with you all soon.
Past Survey Results
In November 2009, former President Stephen Jordan charged MSU Denver’s new Campus Climate Survey Committee with developing and administering a comprehensive employee and student Campus Climate Survey. We continue to conduct, and have expanded, these surveys, and the results are utilized to create and implement strategies to improve the campus climate for all faculty, staff, and students.
These surveys are one way to hear from you about what’s working and what’s not, so we can improve MSU Denver. These surveys were administered by ModernThink and results of the past surveys are available below.
