  4. 4. 4 What are Climate Surveys? Campus Climate is "the current attitudes, behaviors and standards of faculty, staff, administrators and students concerning the level of respect for individual needs, abilities and potential." How students experience their campus environment influences both learning and developmental outcomes. Discriminatory environments have a negative effect on student learning. Faculty members who consider their campus climate healthy and inclusive are more likely to feel personally and professionally supported.
