Perceptions of Eight Priority Statements

In Phase I, eight statements included on the campus climate survey were identified as priority areas requiring more detailed examination.  These statements were identified as priorities because either:

  • the lowest proportion of student respondents strongly agreed or generally agreed with the positive statement; or
  • the highest proportion of student respondents strongly disagreed or generally disagreed with the positive statement.

In Phase II, the responses to the eight statements listed below were examined among 73 subgroups of students, defined by their demographic/experiential background.  Based on students' responses to questions in Section III of the campus climate survey, students were assigned to subgroups across 21 categories.
