Racial Climate Survey for Staff

Sent on behalf of the DEIA Leadership Team and Staff Council:
Our mission – to provide the finest liberal arts education in the country – calls on us to create an environment that fosters a positive racial climate on campus.
As part of CC’s membership in the Liberal Arts Colleges Racial Equity Leadership Alliance and commitment to create a more fair and justice-oriented place to learn, live, and work, the college will conduct three racial climate surveys — one each for students, staff, and faculty — to assess the extent to which race matters on campus, as well as the current level of equity at CC.
The National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates survey for staff will be conducted between March 29-April 26. A student survey was conducted in Fall 2021 and a survey of faculty will be completed Spring 2023.
Please express your honest and true feelings about the racial climate at CC to help us understand your experiences at the college. Your voice matters. The information you provide will be kept confidential. Results will inform our Antiracism Implementation Plan, including new ways to make CC more inclusive. 
As part of this work, your valuable input will help us to better understand: 
  • how campus community members feel about the college’s commitment to equity and inclusion
  • the extent to which we interact meaningfully with diverse others
  • feelings of personal well-being in your immediate environment
All members of the CC community have responsibility and accountability in creating an environment where everyone feels safe, welcomed, and included. It is important to participate in the survey, as it will enable you to become an active participant for change.
Need more incentive to participate? Staff Council has funded eight $50 gifts and will give away two each week to those who have completed the survey. In addition, four grand prizes valued at more than $300 will be awarded at the conclusion of the survey.
Look for an email about the NACCC from helpdesk@nacccsurvey.org on Tuesday, March 29, and click the link inside to participate. The survey will go to all benefits-eligible staff hired prior to March 1, 2022.
This survey is conducted by the University of Southern California Race and Equity Center and Colorado College is not given any information in a way that would enable them to trace answers back to a specific person, even if you are part of a small demographic group. This survey is anonymous and individual results are confidential.
Thank you so much for your commitment to antiracism at Colorado College.
