Issues Covered During 2010-2011:

 

As charged, FDDE attaches data on the status of women and ethnic minority faculty members at USU as Appendices 1-7.

 

Following up on what we learned in 2009-2010 about the limits of AA/EO when it comes to serving as an advocacy office, this year the committee decided to explore other options for promoting issues related to diversity on the USU campus. Initially FDDE explored the possible creation of or participation a survey to determine what diversity issues were of greatest concern to our faculty.  In January, we put forward a proposal to Faculty Senate Executive Committee asking for Senate support in seeking funding for participation in the national HERI survey to help us understand faculty priorities related to diversity and other campus climate issues.  Due to concerns raised in Faculty Senate Executive Committee and in further discussions with Provost Coward (specifically, relating to the length of the instrument and previous response rates both at USU and other institutions), this proposal did not move forward.

 

In March we also put forward a proposal to Faculty Senate Executive Committee suggesting the development of an administrative unit responsible for all diversity initiatives at Utah State.  That initiative is still under discussion and we are continuing to make revisions to the proposal. We are scheduled to meet with James Morales of the Diversity Council and have also requested a meeting with President Albrecht to gain insight into his vision for diversity initiatives on campus.

 

Finally, we also spent some time early in the year discussing the matter of lactation rooms on the USU campus.  This issue did not move forward to Faculty Senate Executive Committee, but future members of FDDE may want to revisit this matter and a letter endorsed by all members of the 2010-2011 committee.  The committee became increasingly involved in the diversity initiative discussed above and we did not the obtain endorsement of Exec or Senate to move forward with this matter.

Note: The Caine College formed at the beginning of FY201; however with only one year of data, it seems to make sense to merge the totals for another year or two so that trend lines can develop.

Tenure Track Asst. Prof. Compared to National Availability for all Colleges during 2009

Note: These data represent the percentage of assistant professors within departments included in the colleges (from AAA) as compared to newly minted Ph.D.s in those same disciplines (obtained from AA/EO).  AA/EO obtains their numbers from the Survey of Earned Doctorates and compiles it with U.S. Census data.  This year the delivery of the data has been delayed. Unfortunately, these updated data are not available to report from the AA/EO office for 2010 as of the deadline for submitting the annual report, however Stacy Sturgeon in the AA/EO office has indicated that there should not be much change in the availability numbers.
