Abstract

The purpose of this project is to understand the experiences of all students at the School of Environmental Sustainability (SES) with respect to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). To do this, we developed and piloted a Qualtrics survey that measures how students’ perceptions of SES’s diversity climate and experiences of discrimination vary across different social identities including gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability status, political beliefs, religion, and socioeconomic status. The pilot was administered to 13 participants, and the survey is intended to be distributed to the entire SES student body in Fall 2021.
