Students, faculty and staff members will be invited to participate in Grand Valley's seventh campus climate survey when it is operational from November 17-December 1.
Jesse Bernal, chief of staff to the president and vice president for Inclusion and Equity, said the university has hired a new company to oversee administration of the anonymous and online survey. The Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) is a consortium of colleges and universities committed to sharing data with member institutions. When HEDS returns survey data, it will include a comparison to other public universities.
President Philomena V. Mantella stressed the importance of completing the myGVSU survey, which is considered a snapshot of a person's feelings about living, learning and working at Grand Valley.
“I hope the campus community joins me in answering the survey questions, as the results will continue to support an inclusive learning and working environment that attracts a diverse community,” Mantella said.
