In August 2020, the university's senior leadership signed the Queen’s University Administration’s Declaration of Commitment to Address Systemic Racism.

A campus climate survey gathers information from Queen’s students about overall campus culture and climate, including experiences, perceptions, and behaviours with respect to diversity, inclusion, and sexual violence at the university.

Sponsored by the Declaration Implementation Team, the Queen’s Student Experiences Survey is part of a wide-ranging effort to understand and address these issues and will provide a baseline from which we can measure improvement in the coming months and years.

Our students' voices will help inform and measure the progress and effects of equity, inclusion, anti-racism and anti-violence initiatives, including the Declaration. 

All Queen’s students were invited to complete the survey between March 4 - 26, 2021. We are grateful to all students who took the time to participate and share insight and perspectives on what are challenging and deeply personal subjects – we know for many this wasn't easy.
