This model illustrates several multiple levels of context, including the larger policy and socio-historical environment, the institutional context, and mirco-environments that include the classroom, co-curricular programs, and communities external to college. All contexts influence the three types of outcomes of interest: skill sets for lifelong learning, competencies for a multicultural society, along with the outcomes of achievement and retention. This conceptual model may help us become more informed about the conditions that are optimal for creating diverse learning environments with equitable student outcomes. [Source: Hurtado et al., 2009.

Validation & Navigational Action

Faculty empower me to learn here

At least one staff member has taken an interest in my development

Staff encourage me to get involved in campus activities

At least one faculty member has taken an interest in my development

Discussed career goals Used the institutional

website to learn about campus resources

Read this institution's catalog (paper or online)

Utilized academic advising/counseling

Sampling 2-Year Institutions

Full cohorts Students who have

completed 24 units or more at your institution

Inclusive of vocational and academic paths

Inclusive of all degree aspirations (not transfer-bound only)

4-Year Institutions Full cohorts Students in their

sophomore year (were 1st time freshman in fall 2008)

Students in their junior year (were 1st time freshman in fall 2007)

Transfer students who have completed one year at your institution

CIRP Survey Administration:Increasing Response Rates

Inform your IT department Send out advance notification to students either

through an email, campus announcement, class announcement, student web portal, etc.

Customize the Welcome screen Upload school logo to the portal Customize local additional questions and/or group

codes if applicable

18

Page 19: Diverse Learning  Environments  Survey Administration

CIRP Survey Administration:Increasing Response Rates Cont.

If using the HERI email distribution system, customize the email text, upload the list of student names, and set the dates for the email invitation and reminders

Send email using an email account familiar to students

If using HERI email distribution, be sure to spoof an email address familiar to students

19

Page 20: Diverse Learning  Environments  Survey Administration

CIRP Survey Administration:Increasing Response Rates

Cont. We recommend at least a two-week administration

period, sending the emails only during the week, i.e. Mon, Wed, and the following Tues & Thurs

Check the administrative reports on the portal periodically to keep track of responses and prepare lists for reminder emails

Strategies to increase response rates

20

Page 21: Diverse Learning  Environments  Survey Administration

Increasing the Participation of Marginalized Groups

Most marginalized are least likely to participate Work with communities, student organizations,

centers (e.g. use peers, centers) Emphasize participation as part of institutional self-

study and change “Face-to-face” contact or personalized email survey Incentives – drawing for tuition/fees, parking pass,

books, etc. or small incentive for each student

Key Considerations: Have a Plan for

Ownership & ResponsibilityConducting Research Single unit or wide

involvement for input Similar or different

approaches for constituencies (e.g. faculty, staff, students)

Use of data and stories Capitalize on those

interested in this work Other studies on campus

Use Information for Practice

Dissemination of information (e.g. Summit)

Writing recommendations and next steps

Use converging evidence (multiple sources) for solutions

Prepare those who have the responsibility for implementation of change

23

Page 24: Diverse Learning  Environments  Survey Administration

Plan of Action

Given campus goals/issues and frameworks, determine the key steps that need to occur to incorporate more research about diversity on campus:

What are the desired outcomes? What information do we need most and from which constituency? (Units, faculty, students)

Who else needs to be at the table on campus? What expertise do we need?

How do we encourage the participation of students, staff, faculty?

How will we disseminate the information to ensure it is used to promote progress/change on campus?
