As part of its efforts to embrace a culture of inclusion, Northeastern Illinois University is conducting a campus climate and culture assessment to evaluate its living, learning and working environment. The assessment will allow NEIU to improve its campus climate by addressing the challenges and seizing the opportunities identified in the assessment. Approved by the Board of Trustees, Office of the President, Division of Academic Affairs, Division of Student Affairs and Office of Procurement, the NEIU climate study is now a reality.

Take the Climate Survey

An outside consultant, Rankin & Associates Consulting, which has conducted more than 200 similar studies at other institutions across the nation, was chosen to assist in facilitating this process. A Working Group and an Ambassador Group were selected to help oversee the project. The findings from this survey will help NEIU to create and maintain a healthy, inclusive environment for all.

Participants have an opportunity to submit their contact information independent of the survey to be entered into an awards drawing. A random drawing will be held for the following survey awards:


  • Tuition remission — 1 class @ 3 credit hours
  • Apple Watches — 2
  • NEIU Hooded Sweatshirts — 50
  • $25 gift cards to NEIU bookstore — 10
  • $10 NEIU dining hall gift cards — 10
