Climate Survey

Gwynedd Mercy University will administer a campus-wide student and employee diversity climate survey which will run from October 17, 2022 through November 17, 2022. Students, faculty, and staff are 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 will open on Monday, October 17 and close on Thursday, November 17.
