Campus Culture Survey

2019 UB Campus Culture Survey.

As a university, we share a deep commitment to integrating inclusive excellence into all aspects of university operations and fostering a welcoming community that enables all members to thrive. Achieving inclusive excellence requires a cycle of transparent evaluation and continuous improvement to ensure that UB continues to be a diverse and inclusive community. To this end, UB conducted a Campus Culture Survey of UB students, faculty, staff and administrators across all three campuses in spring 2019.

About the Survey

Conducted by the Office of Inclusive Excellence, the wide-ranging Campus Culture Survey was developed in collaboration with the assessment and benchmarking education technology firm Skyfactor. The survey took about 15 minutes to complete and responses were completely anonymous.

The survey was designed to measure the inclusiveness of UB’s academic environment. It was administered in two rounds:

  • In March, UB conducted the student survey, focused on their perceptions of UB as a welcoming and diverse learning and work environment
  • In April, UB conducted the survey for faculty and staff examining UB as a welcoming and diverse work environment

UB will use Campus Culture Survey data to establish university priorities and target policy and program improvements in areas that enhance inclusive excellence. In addition, the survey will contribute to ongoing facilitated campus conversations related to balancing academic freedom, freedom of expression and inclusivity.
