The University of Michigan is constantly striving to create the most diverse, equitable and inclusive environment for our students, faculty and staff.
People from every state in the country and from nearly half the countries around the world are part of the U-M community. The data present reflects how wide-ranging the community is based on race and ethnicity, geographical origin, gender and other factors.
University research that helps us better understand the makeup of our community will be reflected in these reports, while the diversity snapshot will provide a detailed breakdown of our community.
The University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus is a community made up of more than 70,000 individual students, faculty and staff members. While this snapshot doesn’t tell the complete picture, this is a glimpse into the diverse composition of our people.
The Campuswide Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Climate Assessment data collection (ICPSR 37096) contains the results of a 2016 sample survey of University of Michigan (U-M) – Ann Arbor, faculty, staff, and students meant to represent the full diversity of the community and to capture information and perceptions on demographics, climate, institutional commitment and inclusive and equitable treatment, departmental norms, intergroup interactions, and discrimination.
The survey instruments were developed collaboratively by the U-M Office of the Provost, U-M’s Survey Research Center, and administered by SoundRocket, an external social science survey research company, as a web survey. The purpose of this study was to serve as a baseline for understanding the Ann Arbor campus climate, to help inform current and future planning, and as a benchmark against which to measure change over time.
Variables in the collection describe age, gender and gender identity, race/ethnicity, religious affiliation, disability status, campus safety, rating of campus climate, intergroup interaction, discriminatory events, composite rating scores, and more.
