Cal State East Bay is hosting a survey of belonging Feb. 9-March 5 to assess how members of the university community feel about living, working and learning on campus.
The idea to conduct a campus climate survey originated from interested students, faculty and staff who believed data from such a survey might be useful in planning for the university’s future.
Working under the guidance of the Office of Diversity, a Climate Survey Working Group selected Rankin & Associates Consulting to develop questions, conduct and report on the survey. Questions will focus on both qualitative and quantitative data and participants will be entered into a drawing to win a Fall 2021 parking pass, preferential parking spot (faculty and staff only) or $25 in ZipCar credit.
Rankin & Associates' research from more than 200 institutions has found that positive personal experiences with campus climate and positive perceptions of a campus generally correlate with successful outcomes. Outcomes include positive educational experiences for students, a sense of productivity and overall well-being for all.
