Comprehensive Campus Climate Surveys Report
In Spring 2021, a comprehensive report on the campus climate using data from the Spring 2020 surveys will be issued. This report is a joint effort of the Academic Senate Campus Climate Committee, Academic Senate Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer + Campus Climate as well as the President's Commissions on Equity and Change, Status of Women and Sustainability.
Results will not be reported for any groups/subgroups with 5 or less members and such groups will be prioritized for qualitative data collection.
Student, faculty and staff received a Higher Education Research Institute (UCLA) survey. Most of those who responded to the survey did so before the campus moved to alternative operations due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
The first campus wide communication highlighting preliminary results was issued.The Divisions of Academic Affairs, Administration and Finance and Student Affairs are preparing more detailed reports to be issued late fall/early spring.
A comprehensive report will be issued by the end of Spring 2021 and will included comprehensive interpretation of survey results for students, staff and faculty, highlights what CSULB does well and where campus community members thrive as well as recommendations for improvement.
A Research Collaborative comprised of CSULB students, faculty, staff/administrators, alumni and community affiliates was formed to provide support and guidance on campus climate research efforts. This group is responsible for developing Ethical Use Guidelines and a Data Access Request Process. For the latter, it is anticipated that the earliest requests from students, faculty, and units wishing to engage in supplemental or individual research projects will be reviewed by the Research Collaborative beginning mid-Fall 2021. The forthcoming data request process is modeled after the HERI data request process and grounded in educational research ethics and best practices as outlined by AERA, institutional research best practices set forth by AIR, confidentiality agreements, etc.
