Inclusive Climate Assessment Survey

In the academic year 2022-23, as a pivotal component of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, MCPHS embarked on a groundbreaking endeavor - the Inclusive Climate Assessment (ICA), marking a significant milestone in our University's history. This assessment was accorded utmost importance as it catalyzes our pursuit of creating a more inclusive and equitable institution.

The valuable insights from the ICA data will illuminate how our campus culture, institutional policies, and interpersonal dynamics impact our community. Moreover, this data will guide our institutional decision-making to advance equity and inclusion across MCPHS and, ultimately, for the people and communities we serve.

MCPHS forged a strategic partnership with Diversity Science, a mission-driven public-benefit organization, to conduct this assessment. Diversity Science promotes equity and inclusion through an evidence-based approach, translating cutting-edge research into practical, effective tools for establishing diverse, equitable, and inclusive organizations.

Subsequently, MCPHS has received the results and recommendations from Diversity Science. We are pleased to present the University Report provided by Diversity Science, offering a concise summary of the survey results.

As we chart our course toward a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future, MCPHS is gearing up to host a series of events.

These events include presentations of the results and recommendations by Dr. John Dovidio, a distinguished Senior Scientist and the Scientific Director of Data Insights at Diversity Science. Dr. Dovidio also holds the esteemed positions of Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Professor Emeritus in the Institute for Social and Policy Studies and of Epidemiology at Yale University. View the presentation: Inclusive Climate Assessment Summary of Findings and Recommendations.

In addition, in the Spring of 2024, MCPHS will host conversations with our community members to gather your valuable feedback on the findings and recommendations of the assessment. You can also share your suggestions by filling out the Inclusive Climate Survey Feedback form.

We look forward to partnering with our community members to advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at MCPHS. Should you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact the MCPHS DEI Team.
