Response Rates

While early in the analysis process, initial response patterns allow UNT leadership to be confident in their ability to generalize findings effectively across the various populations surveyed. A big THANK YOU to all of the faculty, staff, students, and administrators that participated in the Campus Inclusion Climate Survey, and to our Climate Survey Planning Committee, volunteers and campus partners that helped to make it a success! UNT response rates were congruent with acceptable social science standards for assessment and according to Campus Climate Surveys LLC, UNT has achieved the highest response rates for any institutions they have administered surveys for in the past.
