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

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

The CU-Boulder Campus Climate Survey asks students about their level of comfort on the campus and in the community; whether they feel they fit in and are welcome here; and their experiences with stereotyping and negative remarks and behaviors directed toward others. All enrolled, degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students (including those in Law) who had an email address and who had not requested that their personal directory information be kept private -- almost 30,000 students -- were invited to participate in the survey. Students of color and international students were oversampled to allow us to report results for these groups separately. Overall, 26% of sampled students completed the Web-based questionnaire (6,125 undergraduates, 1,652 graduate students).
