DEI Survey Goals Focus Groups

Contribute your voice to institutional DEIB goal setting

Stanford is encouraging staff, students, faculty, postdocs and alumni to provide input on the university’s diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) goals by participating in one of several upcoming 90-minute virtual focus groups.

During the 2021-22 academic year, the university released both quantitative and qualitative results from its first campus-wide Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion survey. The survey identified discriminatory and harassing behaviors at Stanford that have disproportionally affected communities of color, as well as non-cisgender/non-binary, trans and disabled communities.

This summer, the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access in a Learning Environment program (IDEAL), working with the Office of Improvement, Analytics & Innovation Services, is launching a series of focus groups to engage with the community on the university’s goals for making progress in this area.

Each 90-minute focus group will be conducted virtually via Zoom. Summer focus group sessions begin July 12 and run through August 11. However, space is limited, so, please register soon.

Additional sessions

Additional focus group sessions will be held with specific communities across campus, including, FLI (first-generation and/or low-income) students, students with disabilities, student leadership (ASSU & GSU), staff DEIB practitioners, IDEAL Staff Advisory Committee and Affinity Group leaders, and alumni. Members of these communities will receive an email with a link to register from Patrick Dunkley, Vice Provost for Institutional Equity, Access & Community.
