2015 Annual Diversity Report

Case Western Reserve University diversity achievements and programs are highlighted in the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity’s 2015 Annual Diversity Report. 

 

The Diversity 360 education program, was one of the most significant developments of the past year, with the official launch on August 4, 2015 with President Snyder and her senior leadership team. The campus-wide program emerged out of concerns voiced by students in our Sustained Dialogue program, articulated in an “I TOO AM CWRU” video, and embodied in the #webelonghere movement. 

 

The report also reflects on other new diversity initiatives, and includes the Social Justice Institutes "Think Tank," and the African American Society's presentation of its Lifetme Achievement Award to the late Congressman Louis Stokes.

 

Case Western Reserve University receives fourth consecutive national award for excellence in diversity and inclusion

For a fourth consecutive year, Case Western Reserve University has received national recognition for its diversity and inclusion initiatives and achievements. The university received the 2015 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from the national magazine, Insight Into Diversity. Case Western Reserve has been recognized by the magazine for its diversity work each year since the inception of the HEED award in 2012.  This year, the university is one of 92 colleges and universities nationally to receive the award.


Institutions receiving the award are chosen based on their commitment to diversity and inclusion, exemplary diversity initiatives and for their inclusion of all aspects of diversity in their programming, including issues related to gender, race, religion, ethnicity, the LGBT community and those with disabilities.

FACULTY DIVERSITY


The Office of Faculty Diversity provides support to Faculty, Departments and Schools, around issues of faculty recruitment, retention and diversity and inclusion training.

 

The Faculty Diversity Officer reviews allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination (gender, sexual orientation, racial, ADA) and also serves as a facilitator for addressing faculty diversity issues in areas related to faculty duties.

 

DIVERSITY PROGRAMMING

Diversity Awareness Training

We provide diversity awareness workshops and consultation services for students, faculty, and staff. In some cases, we develop a program specific to goals, participants, and time frame in order to accommodate the different classes, departments, offices, and student groups that request training.

Some sessions may be conducted jointly with other offices on campus.

Train the Champion

Train the Champion aims to foster an environment that embraces diversity; assist with retention and recruitment of faculty, staff and students; encourage overall workplace satisfaction; and foster dialogue on diversity issues.  The 11-month long program consists of monthly lunchtime presentations and discussion sessions.
