Climate Study

Marquette is participating in a campus climate survey to support the theme of Enhancement of Organizational Effectiveness from the university's Strategic Plan, which was approved the Board of Trustees in May 2013. The university similarly seeks to make itself a learning organization that embraces diversity and asks its employees to commit to a culture of respectful collaboration, personal wellness and continuous improvement to grow Marquette's reputation as one of the country's premier employers in higher education. Over the years, many members of the Marquette University community have expressed the desire to better understand the campus climate. Today, campus climate studies have become standard practices for understanding organizational and intergroup dynamics inside colleges and universities.
