Communication

The Campus Climate Team is designed to support university members by connecting individuals with WSU resources. Support is generally provided privately and without referral to other offices unless otherwise required by policy or law.

The CCT reviews and assesses incidents to determine if there are systemic concerns that can be addressed more broadly, in proactive ways, such as policy changes or educational opportunities. The CCT also reviews incidents that make people feel more included, and provides recommendations on how to increase and perpetuate those activities. Response to a campus climate incident is not intended to prohibit or discourage the free exchange of ideas in the campus community or otherwise prohibit protected speech.

The CCT may provide communications on this site about incidents that affect WSU more broadly so that individuals affected but unfamiliar with the CCT are made aware of WSU resources. Reasons for not sharing an incident may be if the report does not impact campus climate as a whole, if there is no way to de-identify individuals, if reporting would interfere with police investigations, if the nature of the report is very sensitive, or if reporting would otherwise make individuals feel less likely to report.

Because Weber State University campuses are home to charter schools that serve children in grades 10 through 12, some campus climate incidents include minors. For their protection and privacy, the CCT does not publish information on campus climate incidents involving minors. In general, the CCT does not name specific groups or individuals when relaying an incident. 

For imminent safety threats, communication will be issued campus-wide through Code Purple.
