2014 Campus Climate Survey


Campus Climate Task Force Presentation

An open campus meeting of the UC Riverside Campus Climate Task Force, featuring Dr. Sue Rankin of Rankin Associates, was held on May 28, 2014. At the meeting, Rankin presented a report on the results of the Campus Climate Assessment, including the major findings of the survey and how UC Riverside compares with other schools across the nation.

Dear Campus Community,

UC Riverside has long been acknowledged as a nationwide leader in campus diversity. But that doesn’t mean we can sit and rest on these accolades. For that reason, we welcome the results of the UC Systemwide Campus Climate Survey and look forward to identifying issues and implementing changes that will allow us to continue to be recognized for our commitment to excellence and inclusion.

I have charged the UC Riverside Campus Climate work group, chaired by Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Excellence and Equity Yolanda Moses, to review the report and make recommendations about how the campus should proceed to myself and the EVC/provost no later than the end of spring quarter, 2014.

The University of California Campus Climate Study is believed to be the largest, most comprehensive survey of its kind. Encompassing students, faculty and staff from each of the 10 UC campuses as well as laboratories and administrative offices, the survey presents a snapshot of the learning, living and working environments throughout the UC system
