A brief description of the most recent assessment findings and how the results are used in shaping policy, programs and initiatives:

In our assessment finding from Haluani it was estimated that 42% percent of campus members (students, faculty, employees and administrators) were impacted by our institutions diversity efforts. Diversity efforts aims for and reaches students and or the general campus membership as a whole, but that more could be done to reach more units, departments and divisions. It was also clear that diversity had multiple meanings throughout campus. We are currently in vetting a new strategic plan for next five years and the diversity mapping results have informed the direction of the new plan.
