UNL 2002 GLBT Climate Study

In Spring 2002, a campus climate survey was conducted at UNL. Surveying faculty, general students, student affairs staff, and GLBT students, the survey utilized focus groups and interviews with GLBT students, and assessed unobtrusive measures. The results of the survey documented the prevalence of anti-GLBT sentiment and silence regarding relevant issues concerning sexual orientation. The study results reflect a need to improve campus climate for GLBT students.
