The Kaleidoscope Group’s Approach to Campus Climate Assessment
Almost anyone can run their own survey nowadays, as there are many easy-to-use, cost-effective platforms available. However, factors such as question design, survey length, accessibility, communication planning, and data integrity all have a significant impact on the reliability of findings. Without the right level of expertise, survey findings could potentially point your organization left, when a right turn was actually needed to reach your destination.
Our framework is based on academic and scholarly research and our 30+ years of experience supporting clients in all stages of their DE&I journey. We measure current campus constituent perceptions, attitudes, and self-reported behaviors toward important dimensions of organizational life. We also have experts to support communications planning, survey design, IRB approval, and data interpretation and visualization. And as full-service DE&I consultants, we support our clients in developing strategies to address key campus climate strengths and opportunities to support broader vision achievement.
