This credit recognizes institutions with active committees, offices, or officers charged by the administration or governing body to coordinate diversity, equity, inclusion and human rights work on campus. Diversity and equity coordination increases the ability of an institution to more effectively address these issues.
Institution makes cultural competence trainings and activities available to students, staff, and/or faculty.
The trainings and activities help participants build the awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary to work effectively in cross-cultural situations. Trainings and activities that focus exclusively on awareness, knowledge, or skills do not count.
This metric is looking for whether there are cultural competence trainings/activities available for all faculties:
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: Diversity and Equity Coordination.
You should now be on the report page that discloses whether there are cultural competence trainings/activities available for all faculties. To locate the exact value you can search the page using CTRL F or Command F with keywords like cultural competence, training and activities.
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
