The Center for Deliberative Democracy at Stanford (CDD) assisted the university administration in conducting a Deliberative Poll of Stanford faculty on proposals affecting the design of the university’s new school on climate and sustainability.

The project engaged a participant sample of 203 faculty recruited from all parts of the university. They deliberated intensively on both Saturday and Sunday mornings on January 30-31, 2021.

The report summarizes both quantitative and qualitative data from the Deliberative Poll. Results are meant to inform decision making by the University about the transition to the New School.
