Campus Climate Surveys

The University of South Carolina is dedicated to fostering an inclusive campus climate for students, faculty and staff. We know that the experiences you have as a Carolinian — both positive and negative — help shape who you are as individuals and who we are as a community.

What do you REALLY think?

Watch your university inbox for more information on how to complete the 2018 Campus Climate Survey. 


Climate Surveys

USC is committed to collecting survey data every two years to evaluate our progress on addressing campus climate issues. Spring 2018 will mark the second time that we will collect survey data, which we will compare to the baseline data collected in 2016 to evaluate progress.

Our Goal: A Healthy Campus Climate

University scholars agree — students, faculty and staff thrive in inclusive environments, both socially and academically, where diversity is respected and the general principles of civility are practiced. 

Your voice has value.

Your feedback will help inform the ways in which we are, or are not, living up to our values expressed in the Carolinian Creed. We will continuously work to foster a respectful, inclusive university community, and improve the working and learning environment at the University of South Carolina.

Results and Transparency

  • Survey results will not be reported in any form that would identify an individual.
  • Results will be used by faculty and administrators to make tangible improvements to the experiences of all students in our university community.
  • We are also committed to transparency. As such, baseline results of our 2016 undergraduate climate survey are posted for you to review.


We must continue to affirm our Carolinian Creed as not only a formal statement of our values, but also a commitment to actions that help every member of our university community to feel that they are supported, respected and valued.
