Analytics and DEI at UC Merced

An EDUCAUSE Research Case Study

Abstract

DEI is a journey, and officials at UC Merced have ambitious plans to use data and analytics as allies in the work to create a more inclusive higher education. That work requires a mature data infrastructure as the foundation, and as a young institution, UC Merced has an unusual opportunity to establish that foundation with DEI as a central component. Efforts to address DEI in higher education should include not only students but also faculty and staff across departments. An important element in this work is building a sophisticated data infrastructure that includes all members of the campus community and is designed to be transparent and ethical in its collection and use of data.
