Know the Facts - Campus Climate

Campus Climate

Campus climate is a measure of the campus environment as it relates to interpersonal, academic, and professional interactions. In a healthy campus climate, people feel welcomed, respected, valued, and supported by the University. Such an environment is grounded in respect for others, nurtured by dialogue between those of differing perspectives, and evidenced by a pattern of civil interactions among community members.


Below are a list of resources, both at Penn State and elsewhere, regarding campus climate.
