A brief description of the assessment(s):

The Center for Education, Equity, and Diversity (CEED) through Woodring College of Education undertook assessing student climate on measure of inclusivity, multiculturalism and diversity through the use of the NASPA Student Voice Survey in Fall, 2009. Of the 14,416 Western students who received this online survey, 2,872 students responded, a 20% response rate. This response rate is similar to that of the public peer institutions that have also utilized this survey.

This Report contains analyses of survey items within the five constructs identified by Student Voice, within the context of three crosstabs: race, sexual orientation and gender. This allowed for more meaningful analyses of the data and an ability to compare responses among subgroups and between subgroups and the average response to any particular item.
