Dear Campus Community:
As you have hopefully heard by now, SSU has embarked on a campus-wide climate survey for students, staff, faculty, and administrators. This survey provides an important opportunity to share your perspective and your voice on diversity, and inclusion services, job satisfaction, and campus environment. It is completely confidential and will take only 15 minutes to complete. 

Climate surveys are crucial to establishing more equity and inclusivity for our university, and to fostering an environment in which everyone feels welcomed, valued, and respected. You should have received an email directly from Viewfinder - which is administering the survey - with a link. You can also access the survey by clicking the link below that is appropriate to you: 
    • For students
    • For faculty, staff, and administrators
This survey will enable us to elevate and accelerate the University’s work to ensure we are a fully equitable, diverse, accessible, and inclusive learning community. We also want to highlight the extraordinary work being done and address gaps and issues. I encourage you to participate thoughtfully and hope you will encourage others to do the same. The more responses we get, the better the results will be in representing our community. Please watch your campus email and social media for reminders and updates leading up to the survey’s new closing date on Friday, April 30 at 11:59 pm.
