Cal Poly is launching its CPX (Cal Poly Experience) survey.

The survey is open to all current Cal Poly students, staff and faculty and is part of the university’s “12-month call to action,” which was launched in January and includes a series of initiatives developed to achieve diversity and inclusion goals on campus, according to university officials.

“The data and information gathered will be used to build and implement action plans that support the success and retention of the university’s students, faculty and staff; create a more inclusive culture; and serve as a benchmark against which to measure change over time,” according to a press release.

Cal Poly was in the national spotlight last year when a student painted his face black at a fraternity event.

Students have been demanding action from the university, saying the administration doesn’t do enough to secure equal rights for students of all backgrounds.

The CPX survey asks students, staff and faculty to assess their experience and the current climate on campus.

Those who are eligible to participate will be emailed a link Tuesday from Dr. Damon Williams to the survey.

The campus community can also share their experiences at Cal Poly on social media, or through a CPX Stories page that just launched.

The last campus climate survey was five years ago.
