Climate Assessment

During 2019-2020, the Climate Assessment working group focused their efforts on implementing qualitative research methods, synthesizing pre-existing College data and assessments, and outlining recommendations for the College. In Fall 2020, they will bring this important work to a close, having contributed to the College’s understanding of itself and leaving behind a set of best practices for further assessment.

Campus Climate is “. . . the current attitudes, behaviors and standards of faculty, staff, administrators and students concerning the level of respect for individual needs, abilities and potential.” (Sue Rankin, Rankin and Associates)
