The Way Forward with the Student Climate Survey

Luescher, Thierry


Studies of the institutional culture of UCT have formed part of the ongoing task of documenting transformation at UCT. Invariably they have tried to address themselves to ways by which diversity is perceived at UCT by its constituent staff and students. The latest study of this kind is commonly known as the Student Climate Survey (SCS) of 2004. This report to the UCT Transformation Management Advisory Group (TMAG) summarises and discusses the findings of the SCS in relation to previous institutional culture studies of UCT and quantitative data available from the Institutional Planning Office. The report interrogates the validity of student claims and perceptions of UCT’s institutional climate, raises in the discussion of these claims critical questions that require policy decisions, and eventually presents a limited number of proposals for immediate and medium-term interventions.
