Between December of 2015 and February 2017 Indiana University conducted a comprehensive external diversity assessment of its multi-campus, public research institution to strengthen university-wide strategic planning. An outside consultant, Halualani and Associates, conducted the assessment to ensure an objective and comprehensive evaluation was completed. The assessment serves as a baseline measurement for Indiana University in diversity achievement and progress for each campus. The assessment included:
- a thorough assessment of all diversity, inclusion, and inclusive excellence efforts and programs via diversity mappings across seven campuses;
- a thorough assessment of retention-graduation/student success initiatives and efforts via retention-graduation mappings across seven campuses;
- a diversity benchmarking through the Atlas database which enables a comparative ranking of Indiana University across comparable peers/universities/systems in terms of specific diversity, inclusion, and inclusive excellence areas; and
- an evaluation of the organizational capacity, effectiveness, and impact of the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs.
The Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Multicultural Affairs will continue to work with each campus to ensure that the research is optimally leveraged and that best practices are shared.
