Diversity Data

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness, in partnership with the Office of Inclusive Excellence, developed a data dashboard that visually tracks, analyzes, and displays key metrics and data points to monitor SPU’s diversity progress over time to continue to foster a culture of data-driven assessment and evaluation in relation to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The dashboard data areas include demographics, participation, retention, completion, and campus climate.
