Participate in the Campus Climate Pulse Survey
Dear Members of the Syracuse University Community:
As you have likely heard by now, Syracuse University is embarking on a campuswide climate pulse survey. This is an important opportunity to share your perspective and your voice. Climate surveys are key in the journey to establishing equity and inclusivity for any university, and it is critical that we are implementing one, even in the midst of this COVID uncertainty. Effecting change requires each member of our community to participate in efforts to build a community where all are welcomed and valued.
This is how the survey will work: tomorrow, Sept. 22, a survey invitation will be emailed directly to all active faculty, staff and student syr.edu email addresses from Damon A. Williams, a member of our four-person Independent Advisory Panel. The survey will be live through Oct. 30. You will be asked direct questions, and you can also fill in free-form descriptions of your campus experiences and your thoughts.
This survey will enable us to elevate and accelerate the University’s work to ensure we are an equitable, diverse, accessible and inclusive community. I encourage you to participate thoughtfully and encourage others to do the same. We are making great strides, and this survey will help us in our continuous efforts to ignite change and illuminate our work. The more responses, the better the results will be in representing our community. Please watch your campus email for your individual link and take the time to complete the survey.
Keith A. Alford
Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer
