UNH is in the process of developing and implementing a list of action steps based on feedback received from the recent campus-wide student, staff and faculty climate study. The objective of the study was 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 was 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.
Campus Climate Survey
The University of New Hampshire administered a campus climate survey in spring 2019 asking all students, staff and faculty to share their perspectives on what it is like to live, learn and work at UNH. The survey, facilitated by the consulting firm Rankin and Associates (R&A), asked about experiences related to current attitudes, behaviors, standards, and practices of employees and students. The results of the survey were shared at a forum Wednesday, Sept. 11, from 3:30-5 p.m. in the MUB Strafford Room.
