- Review of results of Belonging, Civic Capacity, Basic Needs and Mental Health Survey,
Spring 2022: Report and Infographic. Newell shared the overall results that are being used to inform the Educational Master
Plan metrics. Highlights include:
- 89% of respondents reported a sense of belonging at De Anza.
- 88% of respondents indicated a rate of civic capacity for community and social change.
- 36% of respondents indicated they experienced food insecurity in the past 12 months.
- 40% of respondents indicated they experienced housing insecurity in the past 12 months.
- 14% of respondents indicated homelessness in the past 12.
- 47% of respondents indicated that mental health issues impeded their success at De Anza.
Filipinx and white students are less likely to feel a sense of belonging or civic capacity at De
Anza when compared to other ethnic groups. In contrast, Black and Latinx students are more
likely to report a sense of belonging and civic capacity but experience food and housing
insecurity, homelessness and mental health struggles.
Among gender groups, male students are less likely than other gender categories to feel a sense of
belonging and civic capacity and students with gender identities other than male or female are
more likely to lack basic needs or experience mental health struggles.
Younger students (20 and below) are less likely to feel belonging and civic capacity than other
students in other age groups, whereas those ages 21-30 are more likely to lack basic needs and
experience mental health struggles.
Concerted attention and support should be diverted to our foster youth students who exhibited
the lowest rate of belonging and civic capacity and the highest rates of basic needs insecurities
and mental health struggles.
