Be Heard: Georgetown Launches its First Cultural Climate Survey

Updated: Dec 6, 2021

Georgetown University in Qatar launched its first-ever cultural climate survey late last month to assess students’ perceptions of diversity and inclusion on campus.

The Culturally Engaging Campus Environments (CECE) climate survey, modeled after the first survey of this type launched in the DC campus in Spring 2020 and modified for the Qatar campus by the GU-Q Title IX Working Group, is open to all students at the campus and is being extended to March 6th. The survey will ask students questions about students’ sense of belonging at Georgetown, support for cultural communities on campus, as well as “diversity and identity across various dimensions,” according to a schoolwide email announcement on January 25, 2021, from Dean Ahmad Dallal.
