Thank you to those who participated in the first phase of our Campus Climate Assessment by attending a focus group session in November. We are pleased with the level of participation as well as the quality of feedback shared.

Next week, you will receive an e-mail from Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Brent Paterson with a link to the survey hosted by the Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education at the University of Pennsylvania. Whether you participated in a focus group or not, I ask that you complete the campus climate survey. The more we hear from members of our campus community, the better the results and subsequent planning.

I encourage you to take part in this effort to help Illinois State University learn more about enhancing our environment for current and new members of our community.
