Campus Inclusion Climate Survey reaches unprecedented levels of response rates!

While early in the analysis process, initial response patterns allow UNT leadership to be confident in their ability to generalize findings effectively across the various populations surveyed. A big THANK YOU to all of the faculty, staff, students, and administrators that participated in the Campus Inclusion Climate Survey, and to our Climate Survey Planning Committee, volunteers and campus partners that helped to make it a success! UNT response rates were congruent with acceptable social science standards for assessment and according to Campus Climate Surveys LLC, UNT has achieved the highest response rates for any institutions they have administered surveys for in the past.

Unlikely Allies

Unlikely Allies Series: Based upon the book Unlikely Allies in the Academy: Women of Color and White Women in Conversation, this multi-module series creates opportunities for intragroup and intergroup dialogue with the goal of cultivating bonding and bridging capital among UNT employees. Piloted in the fall of 2016, the series began with campus visits from the book’s editor and contributors and evolved into a dialogue-based curriculum exploring commonalities and barriers that affect coalition building.

Tent Talks

Tent Talks: Conducted during the academic year, Tent Talks provide an informal, come-and go-opportunity for members of the UNT community to share their perspectives through themed discussion questions aligned with programming in the Multicultural Center, Pride Alliance, and our campus partners. Generally held during the first week of every month, Tent Talks are held on the Library Mall and at Discovery Park.
