Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Audit
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Audit 2023
In Spring 2022, President Hugh Sherman made a commitment to OHIO students to conduct a diversity audit of Ohio University. After a thorough review process, the University of Southern California Race and Equity Center was chosen for the audit. The nationally-recognized organization will conduct a comprehensive review of OHIO’s current diversity, equity, and inclusion programs, policies, practices, and overall campus climate.
USC will complete initial data collection and present preliminary findings and recommendations to University leadership.
The College of Arts and Sciences and the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine will receive a deeper dive assessment by USC.
Upon completion of the audit, USC will produce a final report that details findings and final recommendations.
