Center for Equity and Inclusion

Inclusive Campus Support

As part of the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE), Inclusive Campus Support is a centralized resource for the development of an inclusive campus climate. This unit provides an online anonymous experience form for university community members to share their campus climate experiences that are concerning and helpful. Peer support is provided through consult without referral (unless required by law such as Title IX) and by sharing university and community resources. Proactively, Inclusive Campus Support aids with organizational and departmental planning efforts. Categorized general information regarding submitted experiences is shared with the university community to expand transparency and to inform education and practice, enhancing a sense of belonging for students, staff, and faculty.

What is a campus climate experience?

A campus climate experience impacts one’s experience at UT Austin (on or off campus) and impacts one’s access to campus resources and learning opportunities, feelings of inclusion, or belonging. Campus climate experience examples can include:

  • Interpersonal interactions in a class, workplace, or program, on campus or online
  • Written communications, such as a comment, email, flyer, graffiti, or
  • Something that physically or otherwise enables or hinders access to the university
