In spring 2012, Clemson University administered a Campus Climate Survey to all students, including both undergraduate and graduate students. The survey aimed to ascertain the perception of Clemson University students with regard to issues of diversity, inclusion, appreciation of differences, etc., at our institution. The total number of responses was 4,569, representing approximately 24 percent of the student population.

We invite you to review the results. For your convenience, we have included both the raw results as well as a presentation to explain the results in a greater context. The results also include comparison to a similar survey administered in 2010. 

The links below are to the presentation. It is separated into three parts and requires Microsoft Silverlight to view. 

We have compiled additional resources to help clarify and explain our approach with the results. Please view the attachments below, including the aggregate results of each question on the survey, steps involved in the analysis of the Campus Climate survey, an Executive Summary of the results.

Task Force

After making a presentation regarding the results to the Administrative Council in the spring, Leon Wiles (formerChief Diversity Officer) was charged with developing a Campus Climate Task Force with representation from across the University. This Task Force has been commissioned and has begun meeting to develop strategies to address issues of climate on our campus.
