Criteria

Part 1

Institution has a diversity and equity committee, office and/or officer (or the equivalent) tasked by the administration or governing body to advise on and implement policies, programs, and trainings related to diversity, equity, inclusion and human rights on campus. The committee, office and/or officer may focus on students and/or employees.

Part 2

Institution makes cultural competence trainings and activities available to students, staff, and/or faculty.

The trainings and activities help participants build the awareness, knowledge and skills necessary to work effectively in cross-cultural situations. Trainings and activities that focus exclusively on awareness, knowledge or skills do not count.


Applicability

This credit applies to all institutions.


Scoring

Each part is scored independently.

Part 1

Institutions earn 1 point for having a committee, office or officer that meets the criteria outlined above and focuses on both students and employees diversity. Partial points are available if the committee, office and/or officer focuses on students or employees, but not both. For example, an institution with a diversity and equity office that focuses solely on student diversity would earn 0.5 points (half of the points available for Part 1 of this credit).

Part 2

Institutions earn the maximum of 1 point available for Part 2 when all students, staff, and faculty have participated in cultural competence trainings and activities. Partial points are available based on the extent to which students, staff, and faculty participate in such trainings, as follows:
