The university conducted a climate survey with all students, faculty and staff about their experiences on campus. The responses help administrators gauge our campus climate, and as a result, they will develop solutions to improve inclusivity and respect at UMKC.
Dedicated to Improving Campus Climate
Seniors leaders at UMKC have made a commitment to improving campus climate at UMKC. The survey data is being used to develop immediate and sustained action initiatives to be implemented university-wide.
Even though the survey is complete, your role continues. All stakeholders – students, faculty and staff – are invited to participate in the development of these post-survey action initiatives.
The consultant has conducted more than 150 institutional surveys and maintains an aggregate merged database. The data from the UMKC project was merged with all other existing climate data stored indefinitely on the consultant’s secure server. No institutional identifiers are included in the full merged data set held by the consultant. The raw unit-level data with institutional identifiers was kept on the server for six months and then destroyed. The paper-and-pencil surveys were returned to the consultant directly and kept in a locked file drawer in a locked office. The consultant destroyed the paper-and-pencil responses after they are merged with the online data. The consultant will notify the committee chairs of any breach or suspected breach of data security of the consultant’s server.
The consultant will provide UMKC with a data file at the completion of the project.
