Equity and inclusion on campus has never been more important and institutions must come to terms with their current practices in order to improve them. We will share a tool we developed through the National Institutes for Historically-Underserved Students for institutions to assess their readiness to support underserved students. A detailed survey of relevant research went into the development of this readiness tool. In this session, you will learn about this tool and the detailed survey of relevant research that went into its development as well as discover how you can employ this tool on your campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Assess your institution’s current diversity and inclusion practices as well as its readiness to support historically-underserved students.
  2. Use the comprehensive evaluation tool and individual population tool to analyze your institution’s current practices related to underserved students, both holistically and for individual populations.
  3. Explain how to engage with the National Institutes for Historically-Underserved Students in piloting or fine-tuning the evaluation tools and participate in the Institutes’ next national think tank.
  4. Model best practices in equity and inclusion within your institution and nationally with peer institutions.
