Another Inconvenient Truth: Capturing Campus Climate and Its Consequences
Just as Al Gore's 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth brought attention to a global climate crisis, research is heightening awareness of another pressing climate issue: that of climates on our college campuses. Studies continue to indicate that campus climates affect a variety of college outcomes, especially diversity outcomes (Dey 1991; Hurtado et al. 2003; Mayhew, Grunwald, and Dey 2005). Diversity outcomes--including contributing to larger communities and taking seriously the perspectives of others--are goals shared by educational efforts focused on personal and social responsibility. AAC&U's Templeton-funded initiative, Core Commitments, takes the challenge to educate for responsible ethical behavior head on. Researchers at the University of Michigan are assisting participating institutions in examining some of the inconvenient truths revealed when campuses investigate how their climates can impede or facilitate student learning and behavior.
Committing to Equity and Inclusive Excellence: A Campus Guide for Self-Study and Planning
Committing to Equity and Inclusive Excellence: A Campus Guide for Self-Study and Planning provides a framework for needed dialogue, assessment, and action to address inequities in higher education institutions. Focusing on issues of access and success, it can be used as a tool for bringing together campus leaders and practitioners—across divisions and departments—to engage in internal assessment and chart a path forward to improve all students’ success and achievement of key learning outcomes. The Guide is designed with a particular focus on the success of students who come from groups traditionally underserved in higher education.
