Campus climate focus groups schedule

ATHENS, Ohio (April 2, 2004) -- During the first two weeks of April, all members of the university community will have an opportunity to participate in focus groups as a follow-up to the Campus Climate Survey, distributed on March 8.

These focus groups - part of Provost Stephen Kopp's Task Force on Inclusiveness and Equality - will help to effect meaningful improvements in the campus climate for all members of the university community, particularly women and underrepresented groups.

With this in mind, all supervisors are encouraged to give employees release time from their work so they can participate in one of the focus groups.
