The Research & Resource Center for Campus Climate envisions a campus environment where the individual and collective are committed to welcoming, including, and engaging the experiences and perspectives of all. We aim to foster dialogue, respect, critical thinking, personal growth and social action. We believe in the power of awareness, the strength of understanding, and the potential of bridging cultures across difference.

To that end, our mission is to facilitate, sustain and advance an organizational culture and climate that supports principles of social justice, equity, inclusion, and community. 

Campus Climate's mission is built upon four main pillars:

  • Cultural humility training and social justice activism
  • Hate/bias response
  • Community building and recognition, and
  • Climate resources, assessment, and research
