Frequently Asked Questions


  • Is the Campus Climate Survey confidential?

Yes. If you choose to participate in the Campus Climate Survey please note that your responses will be anonymous and will not have any impact on your relationship with Binghamton University. Confidentiality is vital to the success of the Campus Climate Survey, particularly because sensitive and personal questions are asked.

Participation in the survey is completely voluntary. Also, participants do not have to answer any question except the first positioning question (student, graduate student, faculty, staff), and can skip any questions that make them uncomfortable. No personal data (e.g. name, social security number, campus identification number, etc...) will be associated with anyone's survey responses.
