Thank you for your participation in the 2023 Climate Pulse Survey!
More information about the 2023 pulse survey and focus groups is provided below.
Following the 2021 myGVSU Campus Climate survey, Grand Valley committed to conducting focus groups to understand better the perceptions and experiences of our diverse students and employees. Focus groups were conducted in Fall 2022 with the LGBTQ community, and a report of those findings is available here. Dr. Charles Blaich and Kathleen Wise from the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) will now conduct focus groups with employees of color and employees who identify as having a disability on January 30, January 31, and February 1, 2023. Each confidential discussion will be held, in person, with a maximum of 8 attendees in each session. Information shared will be compiled by the researchers, only reported thematically, and with only non-identifiable information. Expectations for confidentiality for those who participate will also be shared by the facilitators. Employees of color and those who self-identify as having a disability are invited to register for a specific date and time here. A discussion and preliminary insights will be held on February 3 at Loosemore Auditorium at the DeVos Center from 1:00-3:00 pm. No registration is required, and all are invited.
