End-of-Program Review (EPR) 2015 – 16

Diversity at Evergreen

During the 2008 – 09 academic year, the Diversity and Equity Standing Committee developed a data collection framework to assess diversity at Evergreen over time. The resulting Diversity Indicators include: recruitment and retention, student learning and campus climate, degrees awarded, and faculty and staff demographics.
