The Office of Diversity is committed to the principles of accountability and transparency. We produce annual reports of our activities and conduct periodic surveys of faculty, staff and students to assess and improve our DEI campus climate.
Office of Diversity annual reports
The Office of Diversity published its first annual report in June 2022. Each annual report summarizes and details Appalachian State University’s diversity, equity and inclusion work over the past academic year, including the status of recommendations made by multiple advisory groups and boards.
Annual reports for UNC System
Following are the Office of Diversity’s annual reports to the Board of Trustees, in accordance with the UNC Policy Manual Sections 300.8.5 and 300.8.5[R], “Regulation on Diversity and Inclusion,” which requires institutions to present annual reports on diversity and inclusion operations and activities to their boards.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Climate Survey
App State’s DEI Climate Survey is a valuable tool that helps the university better understand the perceptions of employees and students regarding their experiences at App State. Survey results will help App State measure overall progress on our DEI campus climate, identify the university’s strengths and areas for improvement, and shape our future DEI goals and programming.
