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 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 DEI 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 DEI consultants, we support our clients in developing strategies to address key campus climate strengths and opportunities to support broader vision achievement.
