Campus Climate Survey

UWM is participating in the UW System initiative to provide a campus climate survey to system campuses. A campus climate survey is used to assess strengths and areas of improvement around diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our ultimate goal is to improve the campus experience for all students. As decided by the UW System, this survey will be for undergraduate students only. It will be administered by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI), with a dedicated campus committee responsible for campus-specific outreach and follow-up. Students received an email invitation on Monday, February 22. Please encourage students to complete the survey. Their feedback will help build a more equitable campus community for all. Contact Michael Rogers (rogersmi@uwm.edu) with questions.
