From the report's Executive Summary, "In his 2014 State of the University address, President Eric Kaler focused on the importance of advancing equity and diversity and engaging students, faculty, and staff in that effort. He charged a group of senior leaders to develop strategies and tactics to improve the climate on the Twin Cities campus. Those leaders formed the Campus Climate Workgroup and met, with staff from their respective units, 19 times between February and October 2014. In addition, smaller working subgroups met between full workgroup meetings and reported their findings and recommendations. The Workgroup assessed the current climate, using available quantitative and qualitative data; reviewed current activities aimed at improving the campus climate; reviewed promising practices nationally; developed a definition of a welcoming campus; and identified, and began to implement, strategies and tactics for further improving the climate on campus.
