CSU Channel Islands Summary:

Measuring Campus Diversity Culture:

CSU Channel Islands currently does meet the criteria for this credit by systematically assessing the diversity and equity culture on campus.

The 2009-2010 Diverse Learning Environments Survey from CIRP (Cooperative Institutional Research, Planning and Effectiveness Program at the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA) was administered to CI undergraduate students in spring, 2010.

The Survey Data was supplied to the campus by CIRP in early fall, 2010. The Institutional Research, Planning and Effectiveness Office is working with the President’s Commission on Human Relations, Diversity and Equity to analyze the results and look for areas of strength and areas of potential improvement indicated by the survey data. The Commission will report the results to the President, along with any recommendations indicated by the analysis, during the spring 2011 semester.
