Body of the review
Drawing on campus climate studies conducted in 2016 and 2021, Auburn University formally and anonymously rates students, staff, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and administrative and professional employees on their experiences and their perceptions of the campus and/or workplace climate during the Spring 2022 semester.
Student Affairs and the Office of Inclusion and Diversity, or OID, has partnered with sound rocket to administer the campus-to-campus climate survey. SoundRocket has administered climate studies in professional sectors, including other research-intensive higher education institutions. Surveys began the week of March 28 and will continue until mid-April. To participate in the survey, Auburn voters should monitor their Auburn University email account for survey distribution and reminders.
This study is part of Auburn University’s ongoing efforts to foster a supportive, healthy, and inclusive campus for all members of the Auburn family. Once the data is collected, executive summaries and other reports will be generated at the campus level. Unit level reports will be created and distributed to senior managers in their respective areas at a later date.
To ensure data confidentiality, the survey was developed and is conducted by SoundRocket, a polling firm located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. SoundRocket was hired by Auburn University Student Affairs and the OID to conduct the study and protect the confidentiality of faculty, staff, and students.
