All KU Lawrence and Edwards Students

Dear students, staff, and faculty,

Last fall we asked all members of the KU community to share their voice and tell us about the living, learning, and working environment they experience at KU.  The results are in.

Please join us as we learn together about our collective response to the KU Climate Study survey.  Rankin & Associates, the consultant guiding us through the discovery process, will return to KU to share the results the survey responses collected from students, faculty, and staff for the Lawrence and Edwards Campuses.  To foster greater openness and encourage questions from campus community members, we have scheduled two separate Climate Survey Report Back sessions.

KU Climate Study Report Back
Wednesday, March 29
Alderson Auditorium
Noon to 1:30 p.m. for faculty, staff, and affiliates
3 to 4:30 p.m. for students

Both Report Back sessions will be live-streamed on the KU Climate Study website.  Online viewers will be able to submit questions by sending them to diversity@ku.edu while the event is underway.

The Climate Study survey and its Report Back, together, are the next step in our comprehensive effort to build a more representative, fair, and inclusive KU.  The survey results will reveal some of KU’s strengths and areas in need of improvement.  Equally important, it will establish a baseline for our future improvement and growth.  We hope you will be able to attend.
