Climate Survey

Gwynedd Mercy University  administered a campus-wide student and employee diversity climate survey from October 17, 2022 through November 17, 2022. Students, faculty, and staff were encouraged to participate. 

The results of the survey will provide vital information that will help inform the current GMercyU's DEI Strategic Plan and efforts. It is an opportunity for the members of our campus community to anonymously provide feedback about belonging, connection and inclusivity.

We have selected Viewfinder by Campus Climate Surveys in an effort to ensure that responses remain anonymous. No personal identifying information will be collected. 

The survey was open from Monday, October 17 to  Thursday, November 17.



Students, faculty and staff who participated had the opportunity to win an Apple Watch SE.
