Data About Equity, Data For Equity: Exploring How Campus Data and Analytics Can Better Support Institutional Equity Efforts
Universities collect and utilize a wide range of data each day that can inform policies and decision-making. Simultaneously, institutional equity efforts span many areas of campus and need additional support to promote the success of students, faculty, and staff. What would more equity-centered approaches to data collection, analytics, and interpretation look like to support these institutional endeavors? W. Carson Byrd will discuss how campus data can be an integral part of the diversity, equity, and inclusion approaches on college campuses, share strategies to aid data analytics and decision-making informed by these analyses, and describe caveats and cautionary tales to keep in mind when incorporating campus data into institutional equity efforts.
