Campus Climate Report of Results

ECU’s mission of student success, public service, and regional transformation begins with you. We know that in order to carry out these missions, you need to feel like you’re a part of an inclusive and welcoming university community.

The 2015 Campus Climate Survey was designed based on a thorough review of best practices among higher education institutions around the country, as well as within the University of North Carolina system. Survey topics were chosen as relevant and important to the establishment of a baseline for ECU’s campus climate assessment and included:

  • Engagement
  • Safety
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Working Environment
  • Communication
  • Governance and Leadership
  • Wellness and Work/Life Balance

The Campus Climate Survey Report of Results contains findings from the 2015 Campus Climate Survey for faculty, staff, and student participants. The report aims to provide a detailed description of findings for each participant group.

The report’s Executive Summary contains key findings from the survey and provides an integrated presentation across all three participant groups. The summary may be used to develop a general depiction of the current campus climate at ECU and act an aid when developing specific strategies to address issues regarding the current climate.

Institutional Response to the Campus Climate Survey 

Next Steps
Phase two of Project:ECYou also recommends the use of focus groups to gather input from the campus community and aid in the development of strategic priorities. The 2015 administration of the Campus Climate Survey and subsequent Report of Results helps to partially satisfy the goals established in year one of the four-year implementation plan defined by the Campus Climate Commission of the Chancellor’s Diversity Leadership Cabinet. Remaining goals include developing target areas for improvement and communicating results and target areas to the community. During phase three, there will be additional listening sessions to gain a more immediate response to the chosen initiatives and target areas of campus life.
