The University of Toledo is beginning the process of updating the Campus Diversity and Inclusion Plan with the launch of the 2017 Diversity Climate Survey.

All students, faculty and staff will receive a link to the online survey in their University email boxes Monday, April 17.

The 40-question survey should take about 20 minutes to complete and contains queries designed to anonymously collect honest feelings about the campus climate related to diversity, classroom climate and inclusion. A handful of questions are open-ended for participants to provide in-depth responses.

The University initiated the first diversity survey in 2016 as part of development of the diversity and inclusion plan. The survey will be offered annually to measure the changing campus perceptions about inclusion issues and the effectiveness of ongoing programs that contribute to furthering the dialogue on the topic.

“The survey remains an important tool to measure perceptions and feelings about the diversity climate in the University community,” said Dr. Willie McKether, vice president for diversity and inclusion. “It provides an opportunity for us to continue a meaningful conversation about a united campus community accepting of our differences and recognizing our commonalities.”

The survey will be active until Friday, April 28.
