#SpeakUp Survey

In an effort to better understand the student experience, the University of Wisconsin-Madison is conducting a campus climate survey, and seeks your participation. The results will be used to provide campus with guiding principles to make UW-Madison a more inclusive and safe environment so all students can be productive and successful. We strongly encourage you to participate in this survey because campus climate is everyone’s concern, not just those who have had negative experiences. Let’s see a strong representation of response from CALS. Information about the survey can be found here . Thank you for your participation.
