Campus Climate Survey

About SFA

In February and March 2022, SFA sought campus feedback to help us:

  • better understand the perception of diversity, equity and inclusion at SFA in terms of academics, social interactions and campus environment
  • and receive student insights into their collegiate experience as a Lumberjack.

The survey was developed and distributed by Hanover Research, which delivered findings and reviewed them with campus leadership in late March and early April 2022. Those results can be viewed in full here.

If you would like to offer feedback or ask questions about the survey or its report, please use this form.


The James I. Perkins College of Education had the highest percentage of survey respondents, earning it a $2,500 scholarship, provided by SFA’s Division of Academic Affairs.

A drawing will provide selected staff members from among survey respondents with a choice of gift packages, which include a one-year, all-access parking pass and 2022 football season tickets, among others. While the survey responses remain anonymous, staff who participated in the survey may choose to take part in the drawing. More details will be shared soon.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Another objective of the Campus Climate survey is to grasp the perception of diversity, equity and inclusion at SFA as it relates to academics, social interactions and the general campus environment.

The DEI-focused questions were prompted by efforts from the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to better understand the needs and realities of SFA’s diverse community. Answers are being used to evaluate the climate around DEI and create actionable plans to shape and improve inclusive efforts.

Student Satisfaction

The Campus Climate Survey also helps satisfy the Texas Legislature’s requirement for state agencies to assess “customer satisfaction” every two years. Questions must provide feedback on seven customer service categories: facilities, staff, internet sites, complaint-handling, service timeliness, printed information and communication.
