Belonging Survey

The Belonging Survey is an anonymous survey for current students, faculty, and staff to provide feedback on FIU’s campus climate. The survey has now closed and results are expected to be released in the Spring 2022 semester.

Report

If you would like to submit a report related to any type of discrimination or harassment experienced on campus, visit the Office of Civil Rights Compliance and Accessibility’s resource page.

Want to provide more feedback?

If you are further interested in sharing your experience at FIU, the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion will be organizing a series of listening sessions on the University’s campus climate. Sign up to be contacted by the DEI team with more information on participating in these sessions.

Incentives

Chance drawings

Six chance drawings will take place from October 6 to November 15. Current students, faculty, and staff who complete the Belonging Survey are eligible for these drawings. Each weekly drawing will result in 5 lucky respondents winning a campus food voucher worth $10.00. A total of thirty (30) respondents will win vouchers across the 6 weeks of the survey. To preserve the anonymity of the survey, respondents must fill out a separate form to enter the drawings. The drawings are voluntary and are not connected to the survey responses in any way. The link to the drawing entry form is only available on the confirmation page upon completion of the survey. No purchase is necessary to enter.

CAPS offers programs and services with licensed psychologists, clinical social workers, and trainees with expertise dealing with student concerns and development.
