About
This credit recognizes institutions that have programs in place to support underrepresented groups and foster a more diverse and inclusive campus community. Certain challenges accompany being a minority on campus. Schools can help create and maintain a diverse student body and help build diversity within academic disciplines and across higher education broadly by offering support programs to help individuals in underrepresented groups thrive academically and socially.
Methodology

This metric is looking for whether the institution offers housing options to accommodate the special needs of transgender and transitioning students:

For WikiRate researchers:

Institutions who report to the STARS program are listed on the STARS Participants & Reports website.

  • Use the institution Index, CTRL F, or Command F to search for the institution you want to research

  • By clicking on the hyperlinked name of the institution, you will be redirected to the page where all their STARS reports are listed. You can select either the most recent report, or one of the older reports to start tracking their performance over time.

    NB: While the values in the reports might apply to different points in time (performance year, baseline year, most recent, etc.), the submission date of the report should be listed as the “year” on WikiRate. This is to ensure that reports of the same submission year can be compared. Any time specific information for the individual values should be included in the comment to that specific metric value.   

  • To narrow down your search, navigate the reports’ index using the Reporting Category - Planning & Administration - and Credit Category - Diversity & Affordability - to finally select the Credit Title: Support for Underrepresented Groups.

  • You should now be on the report page that discloses whether the institution offers housing options to accommodate the special needs of transgender and transitioning students. To locate the exact value you can search the page using CTRL F or Command F with keywords like transgender, transitioning and special housing needs.

  • Always check the metric question and methodology for the unit of measure or currency - researchers may need to carry out calculations or conversions before entering the final metric value
