In late 2018, UW released the "Campus Climate Survey" designed to assess the university's status in providing an inclusive educational environment in areas such as access, diversity, equity and inclusion for its students and employees. The survey closed on April 19, 2019 and was administered by the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management (NCHERM).

Does the assessment process address student outcomes related to diversity, equity and success (e.g. graduation/success and retention rates for underrepresented groups)?:
Does the assessment process address employee outcomes related to diversity and equity (e.g. pay and retention rates for underrepresented groups)?:
A brief description of the most recent assessment findings and how the results are used in shaping policy, programs and initiatives:
