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.  The launch of the survey will most likely take place during spring semester 2019.
