Goals in this category:
To enact change, campus leaders should have a thorough understanding of students’ experiences, drawing on surveys and demographic data.
UWM’s Office of Assessment and Research regularly surveys students and produces comprehensive information that serves as a report card on the university. Results from the National Survey of Student Engagement, Senior Satisfaction Survey and other reports help guide policies and decisions designed to create a better student experience.
UWM will build on existing surveys to create a comprehensive campus climate assessment that informs the university and helps reach Moon Shot for Equity objectives.
Ensure that campus leaders and others in key roles at UWM have the training needed to address issues of inequality and implement the changes necessary to eliminate equity gaps.
Twenty members of our faculty, staff and administrators recently completed training through the University of Southern California’s Race and Equity Center. Also, a UWM work group already is developing curriculum for anti-racism training that will be mandated for all students, faculty and staff.
We will build on existing initiatives by taking part in EAB’s Leadership Institute, which will empower participants to make the decisions and take the initiative needed to close equity gaps.
