Finger Lakes Community College aims to create a campus environment where all members of the FLCC community can achieve success. To make our institution the best it can be, we will be asking students, faculty, staff, and administrators to share their experiences through a survey called "Laker Voices: Assessment of Climate for Learning, Living, and Working at FLCC."

Campus climate defined

Climate refers to the current attitudes, behaviors, and standards of employees and students concerning the access for, inclusion of, and level of respect for individual and group needs, abilities, and potential.
