What is the USF Campus Climate Survey?

The University of San Francisco administered a campus climate survey in fall 2017, asking all students, staff, and faculty to share their perspectives on what it is like to live, learn, and work at USF. The survey, administered by the consulting firm Rankin and Associates, asked about experiences related to current attitudes, behaviors, standards, and practices of employees and students. The results of the survey were presented to the campus community in spring 2018.

The USF Climate Assessment

We at USF have assessed our campus climate to determine how we can affirm and strengthen an inclusive community.

The assessment entails four main steps:

  • This past spring of 2017, a team from Rankin & Associates Consulting conducted conversations with small groups of students, faculty, and staff to learn about our current climate.
  • In the fall of 2017, we, with the help of Rankin & Associates, distributed a campus climate survey that all students, faculty, and staff were invited to complete.
  • Last fall and winter, Rankin & Associates gathered the survey responses and analyzed the findings. In spring 2018,  Rankin & Associates shared the results with the entire USF community at town hall meetings, and recommended suggestions for improvement.
  • Moving forward, this academic year we are sharing the results campus-wide to highlight the survey findings and improve the campus climate across the USF community.
