This committee issued an informal Workplace Civility Climate survey in 2009, and another in 2012. In 2017, the committee again surveyed employees in the Workplace Climate Survey, which served to provide general updates and track progress that has been made on the goals outlined in 2012.
Quantitative and qualitative analyses were done on the collective responses of the 34% of the staff and faculty (a representative sample of the 100% of employees assessed) population who elected to participate in the survey.

A brief description of the mechanism(s) by which the institution addresses issues raised by the evaluation (including examples from the previous three years):

The Office of Institutional Equity (formerly Office of Diversity and Equity) conducts training sessions for faculty, staff, and graduate students. There are several training sessions each year that address Diversity Awareness and Sexual Harassment Prevention. The University also has a Chief Diversity Officer (currently Dana A. Wilder) who reports directly to the president and leads the University’s Diversity Council in efforts to review and assess the effectiveness of UConn’s diversity and inclusion programs.
