Climate survey on diversity and equity open through March 28

UAF has partnered with the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium to administer a diversity and equity campus climate survey to the entire UAF community. This survey asks students, faculty, staff and administrators about their perceptions and experiences related to diversity, inclusion, discrimination and harassment at UAF. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, and responses are anonymous.

A survey invitation email was sent on Tuesday, Feb. 14 and a reminder email was sent Tuesday, Feb. 28. Each participant has been sent an individualized link that cannot be shared with others. Search your email for "" to find your link. The survey will close Tuesday, March 28 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Results from the climate survey will be used by UAF's Department of Equity and Compliance, as well as the UAF Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence (UAF SP-IE) project teams to inform programs, support, policies and practices as we all work toward growing a university culture that embraces respect, inclusion, diversity and caring. Summarized results will be shared broadly with the UAF community.

More information about the survey instrument can be found here. The survey has received an exemption from UAF's Institutional Review Board.
