Montclair State University Campus Climate Assessment Soaring Together - Deepening diversity, enhancing equity, increasing inclusion and building belonging in the University community.

Dear Red Hawks!

As you know, Montclair State University has been working with SOVA, a higher education consulting firm, since October 2022, to evaluate our campus climate and culture with respect to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. The campus assessment committee led listening sessions and a survey of students and employees was conducted with responses inclusive of many from our campus community.

Next Steps

Next, a set of focus groups will support deeper conversations around our collective experiences and hopes for the future at Montclair State University. The focus groups with students, faculty and staff will be facilitated by SOVA throughout February and March 2023. SOVA is working diligently to define an inclusive sampling strategy and participation criteria based on a stratified randomized sampling method. We encourage your participation if invited.
