Climate Survey

In the fall of 2011, a University-wide Climate Survey was distributed to all faculty, staff, and students at the University of Illinois. The survey assessed perceptions of inclusiveness, friendliness, cooperation, professionalism, recognition, support, and opportunities for advancement and academic success.

At the conclusion of the survey, conducted by the Survey Research Laboratory (SRL) in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (OVPAA), more than 17,000 responses had been received.

The executive summary and reports, with findings from the University-wide Climate Survey, have more details on responses to individual questions.

Below is the breakdown of responses by type (employee or student) and by campus:
