Diversity Profiles

Diversity Profiles provides a set of online, access-protected dashboards for the Deans and Vice Chancellors of the major academic and administrative units to access diversity data regarding their units. Diversity Profiles is a response to the need for deans and vice chancellors to use evidence to establish measurable goals for their units that align with institutional goals and that are focused on their unit’s priorities. The information is intended enable senior leaders to identify new or modified strategies to improve diversity and inclusion efforts, based on data. Deans, Vice Chancellors, and their proxies/delegates are authorized to have access to data for their units.

Diversity Profiles is intended as a starting point for exploring data related to campus diversity and inclusion topics. The data is also used by our office to generate an annual campus accountability report on Diversity and Inclusion. That report will provide an assessment on how the university’s academic and administrative units are doing in complying with federal affirmative action guidelines and making progress toward achieving the campus goals of increasing diversity in our student body and workforce, and building a more inclusive campus community.

Please note that access to the Diversity Profiles dashboard is restricted to Deans, Vice Chancellors and their designees. For questions or access please contact Vickie Gomez.



History and Goals

The Diversity Profiles was originally designed to establish a campus repository where data on diversity and inclusion for faculty, staff and students can be collected on an annual basis.  For the first phase we collected a 5 year “snapshot” of data to establish a baseline for the Deans and Vice Chancellors of the 22 major academic and administrative units to set meaningful goals for their units.

The project’s goals are:

  1. Gather auditable diversity and inclusion data into a central campus data repository (Campus Data Warehouse-Budget and Institutional Analysis (BIA))
  2. Develop a set of Diversity Profiles dashboards to enable senior campus leadership to:
    1. Access complete, thorough and accurate data related to campus diversity and inclusion;
    2. Generate status reports for each of the 22 academic and administrative units, as well as a campus-wide Diversity Profiles Accountability Report.
    3. Enable campus leadership to view trends and measure progress by unit and for the campus as a whole over time.
    4. Restrict access as needed.
  3. Provide an accountability framework for evaluating the senior leaders of the 22 major campus units on progress towards achieving diversity and inclusion goals.
  4. Develop and document the integrity of annual reporting processes with respect to diversity, including how data will be collected and updated and reports generated.

Reporting Units

The reporting units are based on divisions defined by UC Davis for reporting to the U.S. Department of Labor on compliance with our affirmative action obligations as a federal contractor to recruit and advance qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans.
