As part of the Moonshot for Equity challenge, UW-Parkside administered the National Assessment of College Campus Climates (NACCC) survey in the Fall 2021. The NACCC is based on more than a decade of climate studies at colleges and university across the country and is designed to assess students’ feelings about mattering, inclusion and the racial climate on campus.
All University of Wisconsin-Parkside undergraduate students (N=3,211) were invited to participate in the NACCC survey in Fall 2021. In total, 828 students responded to the survey for a response rate of 25.8%.
