In spring 2021, the UW System Campus Climate Survey Working Group was charged with providing guidance on the planning and administration of a systemwide campus climate survey. The Diverse Learning Environments (DLE) survey, developed by the Higher Education Research Institute, was selected to assess student outcomes as well as their learning environments to determine academic progress centered on diversity issues including climate, campus practices, and outcomes. 

The results from the DLE survey offer important insights in shaping student learning as a campus community. The survey provides vital information on campus climate - the social and psychological climate on campus that impacts students' educational environment and their academic success. 

The UWL campus climate advisory team is comprised of the following campus representatives:

  • Barbara Stewart - Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion
  • Dina Zavala, Ph.D. - Assistant Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion
  • Williem Vanroosenbeek - Director of LGBTQA Services and Programs
  • K.C. Cayo - Vice President of Student Association
  • Nabamita Dutta, Ph.D. - Professor of Economics
  • Grace Engen - Senior Institutional Research Analyst
  • Bryan Kopp, Ph.D. - Associate Professor of English
  • Kate Parker, Ph.D. - Associate Professor of English
  • Tara Nelson, Ph.D. - Director for the Center of Transformative Justice
  • Jason Sumontha, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology
