Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much time should be allocated for completing the Global Equity & Inclusion Assessment?
Based on feedback from pilot institutions, completion of all 9 modules of the Global Equity & Inclusion Assessment may take between 10 and 14 hours.
Should this be completed by one staff member? A team or committee?
It can be advantageous to designate one staff person as the project manager to guide a committee in completing the Global Equity & Inclusion Assessment. Information and data will need to be gathered from multiple campus units which will require a collaborative effort.
How does my information remain confidential?
Scores from participating institutions are blindly aggregated. Institutions can gauge progress by comparing scores to other similar institutions (based on student enrollment and institution type); however, institutional names are not made public. Institution's score and overall rating will only be reported with the consent of the institution.
What if we are just beginning our efforts toward Diversity and Inclusion in Education Abroad? Should we wait to participate until our efforts have become more institutionalized?
The Global Equity & Inclusion Assessment is intended to engage and recognize the full spectrum of study abroad offices at colleges and universities in the U.S. Additionally, it is intended to involve those just starting their efforts toward diversity and inclusion in education abroad to long-time diversity and inclusion leaders.
