Tulane University will administer an equity, diversity and inclusion survey in an effort to better understand how students, faculty and staff view discrimination on campus, the school announced Thursday. 

The survey will also identify areas that could benefit from EDI initiatives. The university said it will share the survey’s findings in the fall of 2023. 

The EDI survey is open to all students, faculty and staff from Oct. 27 through Nov. 17. All responses are confidential. 

Questions come from The Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium, a group of private colleges and universities that collects data to analyze issues on campus ranging from discrimination to sexual assault. Tulane’s 2018 Sexual Misconduct Climate Survey was developed by a different group and will announce results this spring.  

Paper copies and Spanish language versions of the survey are available upon request. The school plans to reassess discrimination on campus every five years, according to the survey website.
