When Can I Take It?
From the President
Dear Members of the Franklin & Marshall Community,
At Franklin & Marshall College, we seek to create an environment characterized by openness, fairness, and equal access for all students, staff, and faculty. A welcoming and inclusive campus climate is grounded in mutual respect, nurtured by dialogue, demonstrated by a pattern of civil interaction, and is one of the foundations of our educational model. Creating and maintaining a community environment that respects individual needs, abilities, and potential is critically important.
You may have heard that we are in the process of assessing how all members of our community experience the current campus climate by conducting a Climate Study on Diversity and Inclusion. The project has several objectives: 1) identify successful initiatives, 2) uncover any challenges facing members of our community, and 3) develop ways to build on our successes and address our challenges.
I encourage you to take the time to help us understand the current climate at F&M by filling out the survey. The survey is designed to provide information about both positive and difficult aspects of our climate. It is an opportunity to describe your personal experiences and your observations, and to offer suggestions for change that might improve the campus climate at F&M.
Please be sure that all your answers will remain confidential and the results will be reported in group form only. You will not be identifiable as an individual. Your participation in this project is voluntary. This research has been reviewed and approved by the F&M Institutional Review Board. Additional information about the project is available here.
I urge you to take the 20-30 minutes needed to answer the questions. You will be helping us move forward as a community.
Thank you in advance for contributing to this vital project!
