Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (EDIB) Campus Climate Survey

EDIB Campus Climate Survey Findings and Executive Summary will be made available soon!

In working towards the aspirations stated in our Inclusive Excellence Vision Statement, a priority for the Harvard Chan School is to establish a process for ongoing data collection within our community, which is needed to inform strategy and advancement of our institutional equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging activities. We will continue to work with our students, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, researchers and staff to understand their experiences, perspectives, and needs as we move forward.

Why the Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (EDIB) Campus Climate Survey?

This survey will collect information on perceptions of institutional climate, perceptions of how the institution supports diversity efforts, and experiences with bias-related incidents and discrimination. By surveying the community periodically, we will be able to identify and monitor areas of growth, develop data-driven action steps, and track progress over time. To participate, Harvard Chan students, staff, faculty, postdocs, and researchers are asked to complete a brief, anonymous survey.

What steps are involved with the Climate Survey and afterwards?

Below is a summary of key steps associated with the EDIB Campus Climate Survey that will be implemented in Spring and Summer 2022:

How can I stay engaged if I graduated before findings are shared?

We want to continue to get your input, and so in order to support continued engagement for students graduating in May 2022, our office will make findings and related content available on this web page, and this is in addition to communications about the EDIB Campus Climate Survey that will go directly to our alumni community. We also encourage you to provide your feedback and suggestions by sending an email to odi@hsph.harvard.edu.

What do I need to access the survey?

With the EDIB Campus Climate Survey, your email address will serve as the user ID with which you can access the climate survey, which will be administered by our partnering organization, Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS). This process will ensure that only Harvard Chan affiliated individuals can actually access and complete the survey. HEDS will receive the data and will only share aggregate and de-identified data with us.

How can I provide feedback to the School about my experience?

To provide feedback on your own experiences at Harvard Chan, please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at odi@hsph.harvard.edu.
