Your Voice. Your KU.
Look to your left, look to your right, look all around. What do you see? What do you hear? What do you experience? What drives you? What do you most value? These elements all form the climate of the University of Kansas. Assessing KU’s climate — how well we as an institution value others and enable their success — is crucial to our continuing improvement as an exceptional university. At the University of Kansas we seek to create an environment characterized by openness, fairness, and equal access for all students, staff, and faculty. Creating and maintaining a community environment that respects individual needs, abilities, and potential is critically important. A welcoming and inclusive campus climate is grounded in mutual respect, nurtured by dialogue, evidenced by a pattern of civil interaction, and is one of the foundations of our educational model.
Thanks to all who participated in the university-wide Climate Study Survey.

Climate Study Reports Inquiry
The unit-specific KU Climate Study reports are not yet finalized, and we have had to extend our initial June 15 target date to early in the fall semester. The unit-specific reports remain a priority as they represent potentially important contributions toward KU’s overall efforts to assess and improve the working, learning and living conditions at the university.
As has been stated earlier, availability of unit reports — as well as the amount of detail within each report — is dependent upon the level of survey participation within a specific unit. These measures help ensure confidentiality that was promised to survey participants.
All unit reports compiled from the quantitative data set will be shared publicly.
