1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Preregistration Required/$100 per Person
Ellen Bara Stolzenberg, Assistant Director of CIRP, UCLA Higher Education Research Institute
The Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) is the nation’s largest and oldest empirical study of higher education, involving data on some 1,900 institutions and over 15 million college students. CIRP’s newest survey, the Diverse Learning Environments (DLE) Survey integrates the assessment of student learning outcomes and campus practices, all in terms of the campus climate for diversity. Climate issues covered on the survey include positive and negative cross-racial interaction; institutional commitment to diversity, discrimination and harassment; and academic validation in the classroom. Campus practices include curricular and co-curricular diversity activities and student support services. Student outcomes include Habits of Mind, Pluralistic Orientation, and Civic Engagement.
The goal of this workshop is to (1) discuss the background and development of the DLE, including psychometrics; (2) introduce the core instrument and its modules, focusing on the newest section addressing sexual assault; (3) present the reports that are included in the deliverables; (4) highlight the factors that are derived from the survey; (5) share some preliminary data from the 2015 administration; (6) and discuss uses of the data. A question-and-answer session with Ellen Bara Stolzenberg will be included in the workshop. Participants will receive a packet of handouts, including sample report pages and the instrument codebook.
Participants should bring the following:
A laptop with Internet access (optional) to view documents online.
