Introducing the Equity Dashboard Project

Here at UIC, there are numerous factors that are instrumental in determining a student’s ability to thrive academically. Supplementing institutional data with original data from student surveys, the Equity Dashboard is a continually evolving tool used to identify equity gaps related to student access, achievement, inclusion, and engagement. The Equity Dashboard team updates the data every year and continually looks for new categories of analysis to include. The Equity Dashboard centralizes data from multiple sources and is unique in the standard set of filters used (race/ethnicity, gender, URM status) and the types of data displayed (ABC/DFW rates by course). We believe the Equity Dashboard is a useful tool for all campus members, and we invite you all to explore it.
