Preparing for Next Steps: Reflection and Moving Forward

On October 3, 2018, Rankin & Associates formally unveiled the results of the Campus Climate Study. This university-wide assessment of learning, living and working at Santa Clara University was conducted in Winter quarter 2018 (January 23 - February 27, 2018). This is now the time for review and reflection and in taking steps in helping to move things forward.  As a remnder, the executive summary, final report and presentation of the survey results are available to faculty, staff and students with a Santa Clara University login and password.

As shared in the Next Steps slides during the Forum, the University is planning a series of formal presentations and discussions with faculty, staff and students throughout the remainder of this Fall 2018 Quarter. A formal schedule of these presentations and discussions will be made available via this website and will be communicated broadly. 

ABOUT THE STUDY

This climate study effort was a direct response to the recommendations from the Blue Ribbon Commission on Diversity and Inclusion and the Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion. The climate study offered members of the university community (faculty, staff, students) the opportunity to describe their personal experience and observations, and to offer suggestions for change to help enhance the campus climate at Santa Clara.

The goals of the climate study were to:

  • Identify successful initiatives
  • Uncover challenges facing members of our university community
  • Develop strategic initiatives to build upon the successes and address the challenges

All Santa Clara faculty, staff and students (undergraduate and graduate) were encouraged to participate in this confidential study that was conducted by an external consultant, Rankin & Associates Consulting, which has conducted more than 190 similar studies at other institutions across the nation, including nine Jesuit institutions. The findings from this survey will help Santa Clara to create and maintain a healthy, inclusive environment for all.
