The University of New Mexico’s Division for Equity and Inclusion (DEI) has released the third survey in a series of campus climate surveys to be administered during the 2022-2023 academic year. The last survey in the series is directed toward UNM students and will be open through April 23, 2023.

Student Survey flyer

Previous surveys included the staff survey which was conducted earlier this year and the faculty survey conducted late last year. Each of the surveys has included faculty, staff and students designed to gather information about the campus climate of the UNM’s main, School of Law, and branch campuses including Gallup, Los Alamos, Taos, and Valencia. The UNM Health Sciences Center will participate in the UNM climate surveys during Fall 2023.

DEI is asking students to support this effort by taking an online climate survey that asks about:

  • attitudes, behaviors, and standards of faculty, staff, administrators and students
  • respect for individual needs, abilities, and potential across units’ allocation of research assets
  • and the community wealth of the peoples of New Mexico and beyond the valuing of diverse voices at UNM

To access the survey, visit Student Climate Survey. As a token of appreciation for your participation, the first 500 students completing the survey will receive a $10 gift card.

Campus climate is defined by Rankin & Reason (2018) as the “current attitudes, behaviors and standards of faculty, staff, administrators, and students concerning the level of respect for individual needs, abilities, and potential.” Information gathered from faculty, staff, and students will be analyzed and used to identify experiences with UNM’s campus climate including perceptions of institutional commitment and inclusive and equitable treatment, departmental norms, intergroup interactions, and discrimination.

The findings from this research project will reveal perceptions concerning belonging, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
