2020 Campus Climate Survey Report
In Spring 2020, Stetson University conducted a Campus Climate Survey of students, faculty and staff at its DeLand campus and at the College of Law in Gulfport and Tampa Law Center. The survey was conducted by Pryor Education Insights, a national higher education research firm, and results have been compiled into two reports. Each report is accompanied by a Climate Report Summary. The 2020 survey is a follow up to the original Campus Climate Survey conducted by Stetson in 2016.
DeLand Campus Climate Open Forum Webinar
We heard from our campus community about the timing and dates of our planned open forums to discuss issues of race and inclusion at Stetson University. We have been discussing appropriate formats and platforms for these events and scheduled two events for October. President Christopher F. Roellke, PhD, led our first Campus Climate Open Forum on Thursday, Oct. 15, 6-7 p.m. This open forum is the first many upcoming opportunities we will have together to discuss race and Campus Climate issues with the community.
This first forum was for students, faculty and staff. Moderator: Harry Price, PhD, associate professor for the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and faculty director for the Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence This Zoom meeting allowed participants to see and hear from each other. To protect the security of the event, and based on recommendations from our information security office, we limited participation to those with a Stetson.edu email address. Students, faculty and staff were encouraged to submit questions, comments and suggestions for the open forum in advance through an online form.
During the forum, President Roellke announced the formation of three working groups to address critical issues raised by the Campus Climate Survey, and called for student, faculty and staff participation. To participate or learn more about the working groups, visit the Campus Climate Participation Form.
The second open forum is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 29, 6-7 p.m. This forum will be for Stetson alumni. We will provide more information on how to submit questions, comments and recommendations through an online form. Register for the webinar here.
