Chief Diversity Officer
Diversity and Inclusion
The University conducted a campus climate survey in 2008. A total of 2,648 undergraduates, 973 graduates, 609 staff members and 335 faculty members participated. The survey covered the following topics: overall satisfaction with the university, sense of connectedness, views about issues related to diversity and experiences of discrimination or harassment. The results of the survey were shared with members of the strategic planning committee and the President's Council on Diversity. The President's Council then drafted a report with findings and recommendations which are now under review and being implemented.
The survey and report discussed above included student data including composition of the student body and efforts on recruitment/retention.
The survey and report discussed above included data on both the faculty and staff composition and the issues of recruiting, hiring and retaining employees from diverse groups.
Data on the composition of senior staff was included in the Diversity Council's assessment for the President. The report and recommendations included a discussion of the value of community engaged research and the extra burden placed faculty from diverse groups to perform more service on campus committees.
The findings and recommendations of the President's Council on Diversity can be made available upon request.
