Campus Climate Survey

2023 Climate Survey Update

The Office of Institutional Equity, in collaboration with the Office of Academic Planning and Accountability, administered climate surveys to the UofL community in Spring 2023.  This year national surveys administered by The Great Colleges to Work For, Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE), and Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) were used to collect data.  These national surveys were administered in place of the in-house surveys used in the past because they allow us to assess ourselves in comparison to peer institutions.

 All survey results were expected to be received by this summer; however, we are still waiting to receive results from some of the surveys.  Once received, we will be hard at work analyzing the data and developing consolidated action plans to address issues and celebrate areas where we are making positive progress. We hope to accomplish this before the end of October.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Ashley O’Neil at 

Past Climate Surveys

The 2021 Climate Survey was administered in spring semester to all faculty, staff and students.  The executive summary is provided below.  It is important to note that an action plan is being developed by the Commission on Diversity and Racial Equality’s (CODRE) Campus Environment Team (CET), and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the fall 2021 semester.  The data in this report reflect attitudes and opinions expressed in the midst of a global pandemic and subsequent shifts in our campus community operations and challenging social justice issues that have been brought to the forefront of our society.  We appreciate these responses which will serve to support our work to become a great place to work, learn and invest.
