Abstract

This article provides a brief introduction to this special issue of the Journal of Diversity in Higher Education on “Measurement and Assessment in Campus Climate Research.” As institutions across the country seek to increase structural diversity, campus climate has become an integral component on diversity initiatives. In the face of ongoing attacks against diversity efforts, campus climate researchers will be under increasing scrutiny and pressure to provide evidence for the validity of their findings. To date, there has been little attention in the scholarly literature regarding the quality of methods of measurement and assessment in campus climate research. This special issue provides a set of five articles addressing important issues in this important area of inquiry.
