What is the ClimateQUAL Survey?
ClimateQUAL®: Organizational Climate and Diversity Assessment is an assessment of library staff perceptions concerning (a) their library’s commitment to the principles of diversity, (b) organizational policies and procedures, and (c) staff attitudes. It is an online survey with questions designed to understand the impact perceptions have on service quality in a library setting.

Who can participate?
Just about everyone who works in the Library! All full-time and part-time library faculty, academic professionals, civil service staff, academic hourly library employees, graduate assistants and graduate hourlies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library (over 18 years old) are strongly encouraged to participate. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. The only group not targeted for this survey are the undergraduate student employees. Anyone with questions regarding participation eligibility should contact Cindy Ingold [firstname.lastname@example.org], Chair of the ClimateQUAL® Working Group or Cindy Kelly [email@example.com], Head of Library Human Resources.
Upon completing the survey, participants will have a chance to win one of the ten $50 Illini Union Bookstore gift cards by entering their email addresses for an incentive drawing. A participant can choose not to enter the email address if he/she does not wish to participate in the incentive drawing. The email addresses entered for the incentive drawing will not be saved with survey responses in order to protect participants’ privacy.
