Campus Climate Study
At Winona State University, we seek to create an environment characterized by openness, fairness, and equal access for all students, staff, and faculty. A welcoming and inclusive campus climate is grounded in mutual respect, nurtured by dialogue, evidenced by a pattern of civil interaction, and is one of the foundations of our educational model. Creating and maintaining a community environment that respects individual needs, abilities and potential is critically important.
Launching on Feb. 6, 2018 and running through March 9, 2018, Winona State University will conduct a campus climate assessment survey. This is our chance to make a difference in Winona State University’s future, our opportunity to make positive, lasting changes and to help create a more inclusive campus.
To ensure full transparency and to provide a more complete perspective, we have contracted with Rankin & Associates Consulting to help lead this effort. Rankin & Associates have conducted over 170 campus climate assessment projects over the last 20 years.
The results will better enable Winona State to both develop programs and policies that will increase inclusivity in areas which are shown to be problematic and enhance and replicate programs and policies in areas which are shown to be successfully meeting the needs of the community.
There has been a set of Frequently Asked Questions created to answer any questions that may arise regarding the campus climate study.
