What Do You Have To Say?

At Michigan Tech, we're committed to an equitable, diverse, and inclusive community.

That’s why the University conducted a campus-wide survey—the Michigan Tech Assessment of Working, Living, and Learning. The assessment looked at a variety of topics that affect our community and used both qualitative and quantitative research methods. The approach was comprehensive—it included every member of the campus community: students, faculty, and staff. The confidential assessment addressed multiple aspects of your personal experiences working, living, and learning here.

Your Voice, One Michigan Tech

This assessment is supported by the University’s president and provost. The information gained will assist the University in continuing to improve your working, living, and learning experience while fostering greater visibility and information-sharing. Based on the findings of the study, the University will refine strategic initiatives and action plans that enhance the environment in which we work, live, and learn.
