Has the institution engaged in a structured assessment process during the previous three years to improve diversity, equity and inclusion on campus?:

A brief description of the assessment process and the framework, scorecard(s) and/or tool(s) used:

Cal Poly has partnered with a diversity and inclusion expert, Dr. Damon Williams, to lead us through listening sessions and a survey in order to create an action plan that will accelerate our progress to our goals. The listening sessions and survey are the first steps in this year-long process for self-reflection and change.

Does the assessment process address campus climate by engaging stakeholders to assess the attitudes, perceptions and behaviors of faculty, staff, administrators and students, including the experiences of underrepresented groups?:

Does the assessment process address student outcomes related to diversity, equity and success (e.g. graduation/success and retention rates for underrepresented groups)?:

Does the assessment process address employee outcomes related to diversity and equity (e.g. pay and retention rates for underrepresented groups)?:

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

The data collected in this study will be confidential and will make it possible to:
-Access empirical data that we aren’t currently collecting campuswide to build an evidence-based understanding of the campus community.
-Create a baseline understanding of our current experiences to measure change over time.
-Inform current and future initiatives to further support student success and inclusion.
-Through the participation and input from our campus, this initiative will lead to meaningful change at Cal Poly. We urge everyone to participate, so we get a complete picture of our campus experience and can make informed decisions to support the campus community and create a more inclusive culture.

Are the results of the most recent structured diversity and equity assessment shared with the campus community?:

A brief description of how the assessment results are shared with the campus community:
