Campus Climate

Campus Climate refers to the experience of individuals and groups on a campus and the quality and extent of the interaction between those various groups and individuals. Educational researchers, Hurtado et al. (2008), describe campus climate as a part of the institutional context that includes community members' attitudes, perceptions, behaviors, and expectations around issues of race, ethnicity, gender identity, and other dimensions of diversity.
