Campus Climate for Diversity
The IUPUI Climate Survey is collected every four to five years from all full-time faculty and staff and all students at IUPUI. The survey, administered in collaboration with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), is designed to better understand the experiences of all individuals on campus. The survey employs a broad definition of diversity, focusing on race/ethnicity, gender, ability status, religion, political ideology, sexual orientation, gender identity, and veteran status. The data is used by various units on campus as well as DEI for diversity planning and decision making.

Has the institution assessed diversity and equity in terms of governance and public engagement?:
Yes

A brief description of the governance and public engagement assessment(s):

The IU Public Policy Institute (http://policyinstitute.iu.edu/) released a large publication of what it takes to make a thriving Indiana entitled "Thriving Communities, Thriving State."

Thriving Communities, Thriving State, produced community-based recommendations that require policy decisions at the local, regional, and state levels. In other words, it’s not only what Indiana can do for its communities, but also what communities can do for themselves and the state.

All three commissions prioritized:
• Education/workforce preparation
• Leadership and engagement
• Quality of life and quality of place

In addition to these overlapping goals, the commissions each identified other areas including government innovation/local control, entrepreneurship, and acceptance of diversity.
