As part of our commitment to institutional evaluation and actions that demonstrate inclusive excellence, Wake Forest administered a campus climate survey as part of the Belonging and Inclusion Climate Evaluation; it ran January 22-February 15, 2024. Wake Forest has partnered with Rankin Climate, an organization that has more than 20 years of experience working with more than 200 universities, to conduct the climate survey.

“This survey is designed to provide information about both positive and challenging aspects of our institutional climate, particularly as we strive to create and sustain a sense of belonging. It is your opportunity to describe your personal experiences, your observations, and to offer suggestions for change that might enhance the campus climate at Wake Forest.”

José Villalba,
Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer

How people could participate in the survey

On January 22, 2024, all students, faculty and staff of the Reynolda Campus, Charlotte campus, and School of Medicine received an email prompting them to take the survey, specifically directing them to an anonymous link or QR code to complete the survey.  

We urged every member of our community to complete the survey when they receive the prompt – ideally in one sitting – because we need a strong participation rate to ensure the data we collect is representative of all our community members’ experiences.

Students, faculty, and staff did not have to answer every question and can skip any questions you consider to be uncomfortable.
