Thank you for participating in the myGVSU Climate Survey!


Join us on Wednesday, March 2nd from 3:00-4:30pm in the Pere Marquette Room (2204 Kirkhof Center, Allendale) for a campus-wide meeting to discuss the results. Can't make it to Allendale? Watch and participate right here on our website where the meeting will stream live.

Your voice is important to our community.

From November 12-22, 2015, all students, faculty, and staff will be encouraged to participate in the myGVSU Climate Survey 2015 online and confidentially tell us what the climate is like to learn, live, and work at Grand Valley State University. As a student, faculty, or staff member at GVSU, you matter to us and we want to hear from you.

This will be the 5th climate study conducted at Grand Valley and will help support our values of inclusiveness and community, and commitment to creating a welcoming environment where all members of our community can safely and proudly be their authentic selves. This effort supports the university’s Strategic Plan 2016-2021 outcome to be “diverse and inclusive.” The survey results will be used to assist all areas of Grand Valley in focusing their efforts to make the university more welcoming and inclusive. The data collected allows us to better understand your experiences so we can continually create a better GVSU. With this knowledge, we can continue to reinforce what is working and address what is not. 

Your participation will drive action.

Based on survey findings, we will continue to identify and refine strategic initiatives and action plans to improve or enhance institutional climate. Many of the programs, initiatives, and policy changes related to diversity and inclusion and other positive changes at GVSU have been informed by previous studies. We will be transparent and open with the results. The results of the survey will be reported in meetings for all members of the community, and will be posted here at
