Fairfax, Va.— After reviewing the results of the first pillar survey on senior representational diversity, Coop Di Leu (formerly CoopLew) and Diverse: Issues In Higher Education are pleased to announce the first 12 qualifying institutions for the DOIT certification program.
DOIT (Diverse Organizational Impact and Transformation) is a research mechanism that certifies an institution’s progress on diversity and inclusion.
The certification process utilizes four Institutional Pillars for Transformation (IPTs) and a Pillar Indicator Map (PIM) as a framework to identify institutional components that speak to intentionality, frequency, and policy associated with behaviors and expectations for executing transformation within core executive-level activities for recruitment, retention, reward, promotion, and pipeline.
The certification process uses two frameworks to measure institutional transformation: the four Institutional Pillars for Transformation (IPTs) and a Pillar Indicator Map (PIM). Together, IPT and PIM identify how an institution’s intentionality, frequency, and policy is impacting core executive-level activities such as recruitment, retention, reward, promotion, and pipeline.
The four pillars are:
- RD – Representational Diversity
- ILC – Institutional Leadership & Commitment
- CCT – Curricular & Co-Curricular Transformation
- CC – Campus Climate
Based on their respective IPT scores for Pillar IV, the following institutions (in alphabetical order) will be recognized in the November 12, 2020 edition of Diverse.
- California Institute of the Arts
- Coe College
- Edinboro University
- Frontier Nursing University
- Grand Valley State University
- Iowa Wesleyan University
- McNeese State University
- St. Catherine University
- University of Washington Seattle
- Western Connecticut State University
- William & Mary
- Yeshiva Ohr Elchonon Chabad
