The Center for Inclusion and Diversity advances inclusive excellences across campus through research and action - and by providing leadership for collaboration and campus engagement

The following studies included participation by the CID:


In 2014, the Strategic Oversight Committee on Student Success (SOCSS) commissioned a targeted study of the LGBTQ student experience. During the 2014-2015 academic year, the Diverse Learning Environment (DLE) and National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) surveys yielded information about the LGBTQ identified student population at USD and student attitudes about campus culture and climate. During the spring and summer of 2015, The Committee on Undergraduate Student Success (CUSS) conducted a two-stage qualitative study of LGBTQ identified students. The report from those studies shows the data collected as well as makes recommendations on how that data can inform campus policies and practices.
