In 2012, the UC Office of the President commissioned a systemwide campus climate study. The purpose of the survey was to gather a wide variety of data related to institutional climate, inclusion, and work-life issues so that the University is better informed about the living and working environments of students, faculty, staff, post-doctoral scholars, and trainees. The study was one part of UC’s ongoing efforts to foster a healthy and inclusive environment for all members of the University community.
