Has the institution assessed diversity and equity in terms of campus climate?:
Yes

A brief description of the campus climate assessment(s) :

On an annual basis, the Office of Residence Life & Housing conducts the EBI survey in the residence halls. This provides a great deal of feedback about diversity on campus. Specifically, the survey focuses on how residential students perceive their interactions with people who differ from them and what they have learned from these interactions. The survey has been conducted annually since 2004. It is cosponsored by other departments, including Emory Dining, the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life, and Campus Services.
In 2012, the Committee on Class and Labor surveyed Emory employees to investigate Emory's role as an employer and the role class and status play within the University. This survey included a variety of demographic questions, included job classification, education level, gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and citizenship. The results of this survey have been utilized by the University Senate Committee on Class and Labor Implementation to understand the nature of class as it plays out on a university campus, recommend steps toward reducing the power of class to interfere with work and toward increasing work satisfaction and productivity at Emory, identify ways the university could foster a culture of education, professional advancement, and personal growth for all employees, and propose ways to think about how the university contracts for ongoing services by major contractors.

It features data on race/ethnicity, gender, and citizenship, and describes trends across the university.
