Dear campus community,
As I have said before, I am mindful that diversity is a gift and with it comes the responsibility to ensure that all feel welcome, find space for their own development and succeed here. As a recent update from the Division of Equity and Community Inclusion noted, we are engaged in a lot of work across many areas to achieve this.
Because of our commitment to change, SF State will soon administer the National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates (NACCC), a survey about the racial climate on our campus. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete.
This round of the survey will focus on undergraduate and graduate students. I urge all students to complete it. I encourage anyone working closely with students to encourage them to complete the survey.
Students who complete the NACCC survey will be automatically entered into a drawing for a chance to receive gift cards of varying dollar amounts at the campus bookstore.
I understand that responding to statements on race and the racial climate on campus may cause any number of feelings. Detailed information about this survey can be found at National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates website. For additional information or to access campus resources, please visit SF State’s Division of Equity & Community Inclusion, or Counseling & Psychological Services. Employees have access to resources through the Employee Assistance Program.
Students, please look for an email about the NACCC survey from firstname.lastname@example.org within the next couple days and click the link inside to participate. Completed surveys will be sent directly to the NACCC survey team, not to anyone here at San Francisco State University. Your responses will be confidential.
Future campus climate surveys by NACCC will focus on staff and faculty at SF State.
Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and making SF State even better.
Lynn Mahoney, Ph.D.
