A comprehensive assessment tool was undertaken during the 17-18 academic year. For students, we use the Diverse Learning Environments (DLE) Survey. For staff, the survey questions were developed based upon questions used by our peer institutions by a committee comprised of Institutional Research, Office for Equity & Inclusion, Title IX, Faculty Chair/Vice Chair, and Human Resources.

A brief description of the most recent assessment findings and how the results are used in shaping policy, programs, and initiatives:
Feedback forums provided an opportunity to report on survey results, receive feedback from the campus community, and provided a basis for actions to be taken by various campus stakeholders. Examples include the development of additional programs to further define and understand the dynamics of sexual assault/dating violence as well as to empower each individual to seek resources, and a series of professional development workshops given by human resources that educated supervisors on topics such as conflict management and hiring.
