Components of a Climate Assessment

In consultation with a campus committee, the Center for Survey Research at Penn State Harrisburg can engage faculty, staff, and students to gather detailed information about your community via web surveys or focus groups at your campus.  Further, the Center can also provide questionnaire design services or general consultation.

Analysis of results should be done locally by faculty, staff, and students who truly understand the campus climate.  This dynamic process results in a profile of campus-based information that can be used for generating objectives, identifying metrics for future improvement, and overall strategic planning. 


The Center offers flexible and individualized project planning to work with any time frame or budget.  For assistance with your campus’ community assessment, please contact: Stephanie L. Wehnau at 717-948-6429 or
