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

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

A Gender and Sexual Diversity Survey was launched on January 26, 2015 and was available to all employees and students until February 6, 2015. The anonymous and voluntary survey was created as part of Sheridan’s commitment in its Strategic Plan to provide an inclusive place to work and learn.

This is the first time Sheridan has conducted this type of survey. It was initiated and organized by Sheridan’s Gender and Sexual Diversity Taskforce (GSDT), a voluntary advisory committee with members representing various campus stakeholders, particularly those with LGBTQ+ experience.

The survey will act as a campus climate assessment to: gather information about attitudes and experiences; identify existing gaps in initiatives on gender and sexual diversity; and inform decision-making for further work related to creating an inclusive and respectful workplace and learning environment.
