  • Feb. 16, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

INDIANAPOLIS and BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Multicultural Affairs will host public briefings on the completed diversity assessment reports for both Indiana University Bloomington and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. 

The briefing for IU Bloomington will take place at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 29 at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center in Bloomington. The briefing for IUPUI will take place at 11:30 a.m. March 1 in the University Library Auditorium in Indianapolis.

Both assessment briefings will be delivered by Rona Halualani, managing principal and founder of Halualani & Associates, the consulting firm that was hired to conduct the assessments. Halualani will discuss assessment insights and recommendations; a question-and-answer session will follow.

Both events are open to the public and will be live-streamed and archived at broadcast.iu.edu.

In the fall, IU engaged Halualani & Associates to conduct a university-wide, objective and comprehensive diversity assessment in support of the university’s commitment to creating a diverse, engaged, multicultural academic community. The results of IU Bloomington and IUPUI’s assessment were released earlier this month. 

The full report with findings and recommendations can be found online. Halualani & Associates is currently working on diversity mapping reports for IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest, IU Southeast and IU South Bend. The assessment reports are scheduled to be delivered in late May.
