Has the institution engaged in a structured assessment process during the previous three years to improve diversity, equity and inclusion on campus?:
No

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

The Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool helps colleges to assess their capacity and identify strengths and areas for improvement and was completed in 2018.

Completion of the self-assessment allows Board members, administrators, faculty and staff to evaluate their institution’s level of capacity in relation to what improved capacity could look like. Institutions that complete the assessment tool benefit from: insight on the key capacities for success; engagement of stakeholders from all areas of the college in using a common language to share opinions and discuss perception gaps; prioritization of areas to improve; and the development of strategies to build strength.


Does the assessment process address campus climate by engaging stakeholders to assess the attitudes, perceptions and behaviors of employees and students, including the experiences of underrepresented groups?:
No

Yes

Does the assessment process address employee outcomes related to diversity and equity?:
No
