The UT Climate Survey, developed by the Office of Institutional Research and led by the Office of Equity, Diversity and Community Engagement is for students, faculty, and staff of the UT campus to get a sense of the overall climate at UT and to determine ways to improve the culture of the UT community. The faculty and staff portion of the survey was also used to provide data for a three year NSF funded grant called the Institutions Developing Excellence in Academic Leadership (IDEAL) designed to encourage career advancement of women and underrepresented minorities in STEM areas at UT in 2012 and 2010.
The UT Climate Survey utilizes likert scales, multiple choice, and fill-in selections covering areas such as perception of overall climate, acceptance, diversity-related services, courses, programs and/or organizations, attitudes and feelings toward others, discrimination and harassment, and awareness.
The UT Climate survey is conducted every two years. After every survey, themes are developed from the results and the UT Culture Ambassadors along with the President's Council on Diversity and many others create programming and promote services related to these themes to help make campus a better place.
