The Armstrong Campus Climate Assessment is a special initiative to encourage and support diversity on campus through observing the university climate. The University climate refers to the attitudes, behaviors, standards, and practices of all students, faculty, and staff.
Why Armstrong University conducted the survey?
The idea to conduct a university climate study originated from interested students, faculty, and staff who believed data from such a study might be useful in planning for the future and improving Armstrong State University climate.
Why does Climate Assessment Matter to the Armstrong Community?
The primary mission of the Armstrong Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) and the goals of The Office of the President to improve the organizational culture, educational experience and engagement for all faculty, staff and students. In efforts of this mission, the Climate Assessment tool will:
- Uncover any challenges facing members of our community
- Develop strategic initiatives to build on the successes and address the challenges
What happens with the survey results?
Self-assessment enables Armstrong to continue to create a welcoming and inclusive community. This survey is one of the tools used to identify points for celebration and areas of concern and will serve as a baseline against which future progress can be measured. Strategic actions and a subsequent implementation plan will use the assessment data to build on the successes and addresses the challenges uncovered in the report.
