Cultural Climate Survey

Text in brackets: "Be Heard. Take the Survey. Georgetown University's First-Ever Cultural Climate Survey

In Spring 2020, Georgetown launched its first-ever cultural climate survey, inviting degree-seeking students at our Main Campus, the Law Center and the Medical Center to share their perspectives and experiences about different aspects of campus life.

Led by our Campus Cultural Climate Survey Working Group, comprising representatives from the Main Campus, the Law Center, and the Medical Center, the survey was adapted from the Culturally Engaging Campus Environments questionnaire developed by the National Institute for Transformation and Equity. The survey provided students the opportunity to reflect on a range of issues—their sense of belonging, experiences involving bias, prejudice, and discrimination, campus accessibility, the classroom environment, and University resources and responsiveness. 

The survey was administered electronically by Georgetown’s Office of Assessment and Decision Support (OADS) in partnership with the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Affirmative Action (IDEAA). Results from the survey, as well as key findings and answers to frequently asked questions, can be found below.
