Student Diversity and Inclusivity Survey

The University of Montana will be conducting its first Student Diversity and Inclusivity Survey this spring (April 13-24, 2015). This study will help the University measure the extent to which students experience attitudes and behaviors based on ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and multiculturalism. Learning about students’ experiences will inform ongoing and future diversity and inclusion efforts. Information from the survey will be used to make recommendations to campus leadership that will improve the university climate. Survey results will also be shared with the campus community in the fall through various presentations at DiverseU and University Council.

The DAC LISTSERV is open to all members of the campus community interested in helping UM enrich our campus through diversity.
