A brief description of the student diversity and educational equity assessment(s):

The annual Accountability Report provides a summary of information on the efforts to close the Equity Gap, a UW-System initiative that UW-Whitewater is actively pursuing. The goal is to reduce the Equity Gap by half by 2015 among underrepresented minorities, lower income students, and for all races/ethnicities. Improving diversity among the student population is part of Core Strategy 2: Stronger Workforce.


Has the institution assessed employee diversity and employment equity?:
Yes

A brief description of the employee diversity and employment equity assessment(s):

The State of Wisconsin Office of State Employment Relations publishes the Classified Workforce & Affirmative Action Report, which includes statistics on the demographic composition of Classified Staff (now called University Staff) employed in the University of Wisconsin System. This report provides additional statistics and information about the affirmative action and equal employment opportunity policies and fulfillment for the state’s permanent classified workforce.

The annual Accountability Report provides a summary of information on the efforts to balance, diversify, and develop the human resources talent at UW-Whitewater. Faculty and staff diversity provides richer exchanges of ideas in the classroom, broader lines of inquiry in research, and a more welcoming climate for students from underrepresented groups. In fall 2013, 10.6% of UW‐Whitewater faculty and staff were people of color, or 143 out of 1,343. Improving diversity among the faculty and staff population is part of Core Strategy 5: Resources.
