To launch Brown's second phase of diversity and inclusion work in 2021, a University Goal Assessment was completed as part of a DIAP Formative Assessment Report. The assessment helped to understand and evaluate Brown’s progress in meeting the goals of the DIAP. The University Goal Assessment was guided by the following questions:
- Did Brown achieve its stated DIAP goals?
- Were the individual action items designed to help Brown accomplish those goals completed and effective?
To answer these questions, OIED collected narrative updates and requested relevant data to demonstrate progress made on each action to date from leaders of units that were responsible for implementing the DIAP actions.
