It is our mission to provide a campus environment allowing you to fully thrive as part of the Mean Green Family. This fall, we will conduct a survey asking how your experiences make you feel included at UNT. We will use your feedback to create programs and services that meet the needs of ALL UNT students – and you will get a prize just for participating!
Check your UNT email this fall for the 2018 Campus Inclusion Climate Survey. You matter. Your voice matters. Take action and take the survey – and help make your mark on UNT.
As we continue to grow, inclusion has become an increasingly integral focal point for the University of North Texas due both to its changing demographics as a Minority Serving Institution (MSI) with 50% students of color and our emerging status as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), currently with approximately 22% Latinx students. UNT will assess our existing policies, programs, practices and people to determine whether current approaches effectively serve these students, and the faculty and staff that support them. UNT also seeks to create a diverse and inclusive working environment where all employees - regardless of identity, rank or status - can be fully engaged. The resulting data will be used to create a strategic plan for diversity and inclusion that will guide our efforts for the coming years as we strive to become one of the greatest places to work, learn and grow.
The Climate Survey Planning Committee has representation from faculty, staff, students and administrators across the campus appointed by the UNT President’s Cabinet. Broad engagement is required from all students, faculty, staff and administrators for the survey to provide meaningful data. Dr. V. Barbara Bush is the representative for Faculty Senate, and suggested amendments to the survey tool and any other faculty-related input can be sent through her.
A climate survey page on the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity will be created providing updates and materials that can be used to create awareness about the survey.
Viewfinder was created by INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, a higher education diversity and inclusion information source.
Viewfinder Campus Climate Surveys for Students, Administrators, Faculty and Staff
Understanding your campus’s climate is an important step toward ensuring your institution’s future success — and that of your students and employees.
Viewfinder Campus Climate Surveys are designed to help colleges and universities measure and assess both their strengths and weaknesses around diversity and inclusion efforts for students, faculty, staff and administrators.
They provide insight into what shapes the experiences and perceptions of diverse individuals on campus to help institutions create an environment where everyone feels safe, welcome, valued and respected.
