Community Climate

UNH is in the process of developing and implementing a climate study that will include all students, faculty and staff. The objective of the study is to gather data about institutional climate, inclusion and work-life issues to better assess the learning, living and working environment for students, staff and faculty. The survey will be implemented under the leadership of the Campus Climate Study Task Force. The success of this project will rely on the efforts of the entire campus community, and will require the support of all.

Building Inclusive Courses & Classrooms

A series of workshops was developed in response to a recurring recommendation that came out of last fall's campus conversations.  These seminars seek to deepen our understanding as a learning community of the importance of creating spaces in which to engage productively in conversations related to difficult, uncomfortable, and controversial topics and to provide strategies for building inclusive courses and classrooms.
