Request Data, Surveys and Assessments
A self-assessment helps units and departments understand the current state of DI&A with respect to curriculum, teaching, research, mentoring and climate. We offer several surveys:
DI&A Self Assessment
Adapted from Berkeley for use at Mines. You can implement the self-assessment digitally via survey-monkey (request a survey for your unit below). You might also consider conducting focus groups, where participants fill out the survey during a meeting and you discuss a few of the questions most important to you as a group. Check out best practices for hosting focus groups beforehand! Whichever way you choose to conduct the self-assessment, this is a good time to engage a range of stakeholders including students, faculty and staff. If you elect to survey students; we ask that only departments do so because people are so highly surveyed. Non-academic units should not send the self–assessment to students.
Service, Mentorship & Professional Development Survey
Understand the service loads and access to professional development for your employees. Women and underrepresented groups often have higher internal (i.e. within Mines as opposed to professional societies) service loads and more hidden service than their colleagues; this impacts their productivity in other important areas for promotion and tenure. Request the survey below.
The Trefny center conducts an annual survey of the student experience; you can view the reports online. In 2020, Mines will conduct a nationally vetted climate survey through the Chronicle of Higher Education, and results will be made available to the Mines community.
