Campus Climate Survey

Since 2006, we have helped many Christian colleges and universities across the U.S. to measure their racial climate. Our Campus Climate Survey 2.0 has been facilitated on 32 campuses since 2016. To date, over 15,000 responses by students, staff, and faculty have been collected. The extensive data we have collected allows us to more effectively help campuses to understand their dynamics. See the Q&A below for more details and contact us to walk through the content and deliverables with one of our staff members and receive a quote.

What types of questions do you ask? How many questions are there?

Here are some examples of the type of information we collect and the approximate number of questions in each section.

  • Individual information (~20 items): This section collects general information about the respondent. Ex. Role in the organization, age, gender, involvement, ethnicity(s), nationality(s), language(s), religion, etc.
  • Personal perspectives (~10 items): This section measures the respondent's views regarding racial dynamics in the U.S. Ex. Is it best to ignore a person’s race/ethnicity? Is racism still an issue?
  • Organization Dynamics (~25 items): This section measures the respondent's views regarding racial dynamics in the organization. Ex. Does racial/ethnic tension exist? Are people of color put at a social disadvantage?
  • Organization Efforts (~20 items): This section measures the respondent's views of the racial diversity efforts being facilitated by the organization. Ex. Are the existing efforts effective? What types of activities and programs do you think are most effective?
  • Personal participation (~10 items): This section measures the respondent's participation in the racial diversity efforts being facilitated by the organization. Ex. How often do you participate? What are some things that hinder you from being involved? What are some things that motivate you to be involved?
What types of deliverables do you provide?
