Editor’s note: This is part of a monthly series of campus updates on diversity, equity and inclusion that will continue throughout the year.
This month, read about updates to the Campus Culture Survey dashboards, the state’s second annual Equity Day of Dialogue in August, campus resources and more DEI news you can use.
Campus Culture Survey dashboard updates increase search functionality
The CU Boulder Office of Data Analytics has updated the 2021 Campus Culture Survey unit-level dashboard to increase the functionality of the survey results by campus unit.
With these updates, ODA said dashboard users can filter survey results by a specific school, college, academic program or department, but there are now also 34 compare-by options similar to those in the campuswide dashboard.
Disaggregated results are available by unit, provided there are at least 10 responses for each of the groups in the comparison.
Higher ed experts, Colorado leaders to convene at Equity Day of Dialogue
CU Boulder ethnic studies professor Reiland Rabaka, founding director of CU Boulder’s Center for African and African American Studies, will give the keynote address at Colorado’s second annual Equity Day of Dialogue and Symposium next month.
Sponsored by the Colorado Department of Higher Education (CDHE), the symposium will take place Aug. 4 on the Auraria Campus in downtown Denver. According to the CDHE, the symposium will address the future of equity in higher education and how universities and institutions can serve students better.
Featured speakers and panelists include Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and Angie Paccione, executive director of the CDHE.
Other participants include Sonia DeLuca Fernández, senior vice chancellor for diversity, equity and inclusion at CU Boulder; CU Denver Chancellor Michelle Marks; Metropolitan State University of Denver President Janine Davidson; Community College of Denver President Marielena Desanctis; and Colorado Poet Laureate Bobby LeFebre.
Sustaining our practice of inclusion
Campus efforts and investments to address pressing and painful inequities at CU Boulder are only a beginning. Creating a culture of belonging will take each member of our community practicing sustained personal work to truly embrace and support diverse perspectives and identities in our community.
This year, Chancellor Philip DiStefano and other campus leaders urge every member of our community to join in learning more about diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism and to work continuously together to address these challenges more actively and in ways that can help authentically transform our campus culture in the coming year.
