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

A brief description of the assessment process and the framework, scorecard(s) and/or tool(s) used:
Annual surveys of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students focusing on engagement, inclusion, expectations, belonging, campus climate, and more for the Equity Dashboard. A more extensive survey based on the HERI climate survey is planned for a Fall rollout.
The Office carried out a comprehensive assessment in 2008, and completed it in 2012, with a series of action items to be addressed. Since then, we have reviewed diversity data on an annual basis, e.g., Zero Group Representation Report, which indicates departments with no underrepresented minority faculty.
A scorecard of diversity-related data is available at https://diversity.uic.edu/data/
