Data Dashboard

This UMB Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) data dashboard maps and tracks the current state and progress of EDI at UMB related to areas such as presence, recruitment, retention, promotion, and access.

This accessible, transparent, and effective tool displays the state of equity, diversity, and inclusion across all schools and administrative units at the University of Maryland Baltimore. These dashboards provide deans, vice presidents, other institutional leaders, and the entire UMB Community information to address EDI gaps and opportunities in order to develop informed and innovative change and implementation strategies.

The data provided here is already publicly available by group and semester in PDF form as Employee Reports on the Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Planning website (IESPA), generated by PeopleSoft. This EDI data dashboard provides a transparent and accessible multi-year view on one platform for multiple users working to increase equity and diversity at UMB. It will continuously be reviewed and revised, along with data collection and dissemination practices and processes, to be more representative and inclusive.

1. Race and ethnicity refer to different types of categorizations. "Race" refers to socially constructed divisions of humanity to construct hierarchies and is inextricably linked to histories of oppression, enslavement, conquest, and genocides. "Ethnicity" refers to self-defined and shared groupings based in cultural origins and expressions, including ancestry, language, region, migration, foodways, literature, and music (Diversity Style Guide; University of Maryland, College Park Editorial Style Guidelines; California State University Diversity/Inclusivity Style Guide; Flanagin, Frey, & Christiansen, 2021)

2. UMB recognizes gender diversity beyond genders. Employee gender identity reported in our HR systems is derived from government-issued documentation and populated in PeopleSoft from this data; it is not self-reported. Future work will involve aligning collected and reported employee gender identities with actual gender identities.
