Dear University Community,
This spring, UB will be conducting a Campus Culture Survey of UB students, faculty, staff and administrators across all three campuses.
At UB, we are deeply committed to integrating inclusive excellence into all aspects of university operations and fostering a welcoming community that enables all members to thrive. The wide-ranging Campus Culture Survey is designed to measure the inclusiveness of UB’s campus environment and the effectiveness of our existing policies and programs so that we better understand how we can continue to enhance our efforts to make UB a welcoming place for all of us to study and work. Data gathered through the survey will be shared broadly across UB and used to inform university priorities, target policy and program improvements, and more deeply integrate inclusivity into all aspects of the university.
Administered by the Office of Inclusive Excellence, the survey has been developed in collaboration with the assessment and benchmarking education technology firm Skyfactor. Undergraduate and graduate UB students will receive a secure, individualized link to the web-based survey in an email from Skyfactor on March 11. The survey for full-time faculty and staff will be conducted in April.
Skyfactor will not use any name or e-mail address for any purpose except this study and all data received by UB will be completely anonymous. For more information, please visit the Campus Culture Survey website. If you have any questions, please contact Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence Despina Stratigakos at email@example.com.
Enhancing our inclusive excellence-related programs and priorities requires that UB fully and honestly assess our campus culture. This is only possible if the survey captures the broad range of perspectives and experiences represented across campus by faculty, staff and students. Thank you in advance for supporting this effort by taking time to complete the Campus Culture Survey.
Charles F. Zukoski Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
