Diversity Metrics at IU
The reports presented on this website provide a variety of measures on student and faculty diversity. These reports leverage standard and replicable definitions from federal government sources (e.g. IPEDS) to allow for valid comparisons among institutions of higher education, and across geographic boundaries utilizing county, state, and US census data.
Where appropriate, components of this data are "disambiguated" according to an internal trumping rule to provide consistent race/ethnic views over time and spanning the methodological change for reporting race/ethnicity implemented in 2010. These views are not comparable with other institutions but provide valuable insight into the shifting student and faculty presence at IU.Student
