PA-5: Assessing Diversity and Equity
|1.00 / 1.00||
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:
CSUDH Institutional Research division surveys and tracks programs and activities related to diversity (employee and student) and student success. The other centers (e.g. Rose Black Resource Center) and associations also conduct special assessments for specific diversity issues (e.g. representation of black faculty on campus, assessments on cultural sensitivity, etc.) as does the Academic Senate (e.g. Campus Climate Survey).
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 Campus Climate Survey results are available here: https://www.csudh.edu/Assets/csudh-sites/academic-senate/docs/insidethesenate/academic-senate/presentations/senate%20presentation%20final%20report%20-%20notes.pdf
The findings show that most faculty feel that diversity is supported and that there is adequate representation. However, there could be better resource support in terms of infrastructure and certain ethnic groups are being better supported than others. This will influence the types of initiatives pursued by the Academic Senate and upper administration as a result.
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:
