Dear Colleagues and Students:

I am pleased to announce that the UC Campus Climate Survey results are now available. You can access UC Santa Barbara’s full report on our campus diversity website at You can also access the reports for all locations and the UC system as a whole at

As you may recall, our UCSB community was asked to participate in a UC system-wide survey to evaluate a variety of issues related to campus climate in order to assess the learning, living, and working environments at the University. We had a relatively high response rate of 30%, second highest among the UC campuses with undergraduate populations.

Thank you to all of our students, faculty, and staff who participated in this important survey. We care deeply about the well-being of our entire campus community, and we value the perspectives and insights you have shared with us.

Over the coming months, we look forward to an in-depth study of our campus’s data so that we can continue conversations and develop actions to foster an even more welcoming, inclusive, and supportive climate for each and every member of our diverse campus community. Your feedback and ideas help us to work together to continuously improve our campus, and we appreciate your participation in this important collaborative endeavor.


Henry T. Yang
