A brief description of the assessment(s):

Much of the study of campus climate centers on the extent to which the university embraces and welcomes diverse populations. Students were asked to rate their level of understanding of issues related to personal or cultural differences, both when they started at the campus and currently (at the time of the survey).

Year the assessment was last administered:
