Reminder: Complete the Campus Climate Survey

Cincinnati State employees who have not yet completed the "Changing Campus Culture Climate Survey" are asked to take a few minutes to reply to the survey before the deadline on Friday, Nov. 20.

The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CState_2020_Employee.

  • This survey is part of the Changing Campus Culture project of the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE), which began in 2015.
     
  • The project requires all Ohio colleges and universities to bring awareness and provide information to students and employees related to sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, and sexual violence.
     
  • According to the ODHE, Ohio is one of just a few states to have a comprehensive, state-funded approach to addressing sexual violence on college campuses.
     
  • Cincinnati State appreciates your participation in this statewide survey. Results will be available during Spring of 2021.

If you have questions, please contact Soni Hill, Senior Director of Student Success & Student Development, at soni.hill@cincinnatistate.edu.
