Oregon State University's IQ Insights Collections are curated dashboards that relate to specific university priorities, goals, and initiatives.

Ethical Use of Equity Data

Equity data must be utilized and stewarded ethically and accurately. To enable responsible use of equity data, the Office of Institutional Diversity has developed comprehensive tools and resources to make equity data accessible while building capacity for responsible use.

Please consider the following before using the data found through this portal:

  • Creating meaningful and sustainable change requires data informed decision making. Analysis and extrapolation of equity data may provide clarity and orient our diversity, equity, and inclusion values when wrestling with difficult decisions.
  • Select equity data is available for use by institutional leaders. The equity dashboards enable exploration of data pertaining to employee and student access, belonging and success and may be used for initial exploration or to frame more advanced inquiry.
  • Responsible use of equity data necessitates critical reflection on its ethical use and limitations. Guidance, training, and other educational resources are available to develop institutional leaders of all experience level.

Equity Data Skill Building

Fluency with institutional metrics related to diversity, equity and inclusion will enable OSU leaders to better communicate, ask more astute questions, and design more effective interventions to redress inequality. OID provides several tools and services to develop critical data literacy to inform and guide use of these data.


Dimensions of Critical Data Literacy

To guide inquiry projects using institutional equity data, the Office of Institutional Diversity in partnership with Institutional Analytics and Reporting has articulated essential behavioral dimensions of critical data literacy. All responsible stewards of equity data are expected to lead inquiry with care, intentionality, integrity, and technical proficiency.
