As part of its efforts to embrace a culture of inclusion, Northeastern Illinois University will conduct a campus climate 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.

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.
