About the Climate Study
KENT STATE UNIVERSITY CLIMATE STUDY: OUR VOICES COUNT
Kent State University seeks to create and maintain a welcoming and inclusive campus environment that respects individual abilities, differences, needs and potentials. In spring 2016, a universitywide assessment of learning, living and working at Kent State will be conducted to understand the current climate that exists at the university’s eight campuses, as well as the Regional Academic Center at Twinsburg and the College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence.
This climate study offers you the opportunity to describe your personal experiences and observations, and offer suggestions for change to help enhance the campus climate at Kent State. The goals of the climate study are to:
- Identify successful initiatives
- Uncover challenges facing members of our university community
- Develop strategic initiatives to build on the successes and address the challenges
