2019 Campus Climate Survey
The University of Vermont can foster a more inclusive environment for all community members with a campus climate survey.

Furthermore, diversity and inclusion are underlying principles for each of the Our Common Ground values. Thus, it is imperative for us to understand how well we are sustaining an inclusive environment.
