Yes

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

A student body assessment was conducted as part of the UC Undergraduate Experience Survey, a four-party questionnaire that was sent to 26,027 enrolled undergraduates from March to July of 2016. About 30 percent of students surveyed completed the questionnaire and submitted it.

More than 10,000 employees across the University of California system were also surveyed in the fall of 2017 as part of the UC Systemwide Engagement Survey. The survey asked employees about working relationships, diversity, inclusion and other issues.


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?:
Yes

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

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

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

Our high level, initial report of UC Berkeley findings indicate that in general, UC Berkeley shows improvement in areas such as supervision and performance management, and room for improvement when it comes to managing and communicating change.

UC Berkeley uses the Staff Engagement Survey feedback to improve how the campus engages staff and to set priorities for Central Human Resources. To help better understand the findings, and importantly, begin developing action plans, UC Berkeley will be hosting a series of “engagement survey deep dives” with staff organizations and other UCB-wide groups to gather feedback and ideas for improvement.


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

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

The undergraduate survey results are shared through the UC Berkeley Office of Planning and Analysis website, while the results of the UC-wide employee survey are shared through the UC Office of the President's site.
