1 Ball State University Diversity Asset Inventory OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS 1

2 Introduction Ball State University aspires to be a university that attracts and retains a diverse faculty, staff, and student body. Ball State is committed to ensuring that all members of the campus community are welcome through our practice of valuing the varied experiences and world views of those we serve. We promote a culture of respect and civil discourse as evident in our Beneficence Pledge, which emphasizes valuing the intrinsic worth of every member of the community, and prioritizes a commitment to respect and learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions. At Ball State, diversity is an integral part of our identity. Our success depends on our efforts to cultivate inclusivity within our pedagogical, scholarly, and creative pursuits. Community is an inherent and crucial aspect of such efforts at local, national and international levels. As we recruit and retain a diverse administration, faculty/staff and student body, we strive to ensure that our students are prepared to engage and succeed in increasingly diverse environments. The Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) at Ball State University is dedicated to the recruitment, retention, and appreciation of diverse faculty and staff who possess a variety of world views and multitude of experiences across multiple cultures, generations, and socioeconomic classifications. Our goals are to ensure that diversity is an integral part of the Ball State University identity, to be a recognized resource for the campus community around hiring, and to foster an environment where individuals of diverse backgrounds know they are supported through our advocacy efforts. We seek to educate the campus community by initiating, encouraging, supporting, and continuing challenging conversations related to diversity and multiculturalism in order to enhance awareness of the diverse needs of all faculty and staff. By addressing diversity needs we seek to enhance innovative pedagogy, and the overall performance and effectiveness of the University. OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS 2

3 In line with its mission, the Office of Institutional Diversity explicitly values: an inclusive multicultural environment inclusive pedagogy independent and collaborative scholarship related to cultural diversity data driven initiatives and transparent decision making The Office of Institutional Diversity established a Strategic Plan ( ) in order to articulate specific goals through which to bring to life its mission, and though which to be held accountable to the values which are at the heart of its vision for Ball State University. These goals, listed on the following page, form the blueprint for a campus climate dedicated to diversity in teaching and learning, scholarship, and service. Specific metrics, listed beneath each of the goals, provide an accountability structure through which to track progress relative to the OID vision. OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS 3

16 What Would you Like to See? The final question on the survey asked respondents to consider what they would like for Ball State University do in the area of diversity. Respondents were provided an open field through which to express their perspectives of opportunities for growth in this area. A total of 36 written comments were received, which were coded in an effort to determine if any themes would emerge. Based on this coding, there appeared to be two major trends, which included: Recruiting and Retaining a Diverse Faculty and Administration; and Augmenting the Curriculum to be more Inclusive of Diversity-related Content. These themes are further elaborated in Tables 16 and 17, through the provision of selected direct quotations from respondents. Table 16: Increase Efforts to Recruit and Retain Diverse Faculty and Administrators I personally would like to see an effort to bring in some diversity at the Dean s level. I also question why more women don t hold distinguished professorships and endowed chairmanships. I would like to see more attention to diversity as a shared institutional goal. How might hiring at upper administrative levels, for instance, reflect greater attention and commitment to diversity? Increase funding toward the priority of hiring additional diverse faculty and administrators. The most effective way to recruit a diverse faculty is to make faculty positions more attractive by raising salaries and increasing time for research and writing. I have seen many diverse job candidates go to other schools with higher salaries and lower service and teaching responsibilities. Efforts to recruit and retain a diverse faculty would be easier if Ball State was more competitive in terms of salary, benefits, and affordable, accessible child care. Table 17: Augment Existing Curriculum to be more Inclusive and Responsive to All Areas of Diversity I feel that our core curriculum does not do nearly enough to expose our students to diversity. I would like to see more course offerings in and recognition of disability studies across the university Promote disability as an important and critical part of diversity. Offer more courses or perhaps even a major or minor in diversity studies. Undergraduates should take at least 3 courses related to diversity as part of their core curriculum. Change the diversity requirement to be more aligned with the original intent of UCC21. It has basically been eliminated from the core in its current format. OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS 16

17 Summary Ball State University has an articulated commitment to diversity, and continues the work of creating an inclusive campus that will attract and retain a diverse faculty and student population. The University continues to devote resources toward this end, which are evidenced in much of the work of the Office of Institutional Diversity. OID provides education and outreach primarily to faculty and at times to students in order to achieve the mission of inviting and nurturing an appreciation for diversity in higher education. In the past two years alone, the OID has initiated campus/community collaboration in order to celebrate the lives of Nelson Mandela and Maya Angelou to foster a campus and community culture of reconciliation, and to privilege, celebrate, and ignite a campus and community commitment to encouraging the development of children s literacy. These events bring faculty, students, community leaders, and children and families together, building bridges between the university and the city, and ultimately uniting our community. The OID provides workshops, seminars, and opportunities for critical conversations for both students and faculty, and encourages the development of relationships through which to sustain the work of building a more inclusive Ball State University. At an institutional level, diversity among faculty is carefully monitored in order that we are ever vigilant in our work to recruit and retain a diverse campus population. While tracking our growth in this area is not new, The Centennial Commitment - a refreshed strategic plan for Ball State University - presents a renewed priority for progress in the area of diversity. In a complementary vein, the University seeks to explore, monitor, encourage, and reward faculty productivity in diversity-related endeavors, including presentations, publications, grant awards, and professional service and partnerships which advance diversity-related research and efforts toward social justice and equity. Results of Ball State University s Diversity Asset Inventory provide a benchmark from which to measure our growth relative to diversity-related professional scholarship on and off the Ball State campus. With inherent limitations in survey-based research, we realize that we have only begun to know and understand the breadth of campus diversity-related activity. However, we hope this report will be shared with each academic unit to further identify ways to reward faculty endeavors in the area of diversity and increase support for faculty related research, teaching, and service. Based on what we have gleaned through this initial exploration, we are energized to celebrate the work we have identified, and to uphold these individual and collective efforts as evidence that we continue to move forward toward a vision of solidarity, critical consciousness, and affirmation of diversity as an asset which has the potential to unite us, and build a stronger, and more vibrant Ball State.
