Diversity Dashboards

The Diversity Dashboards display the demographic composition of students, faculty, and staff at the University of Rochester. Data are drawn from “snapshots” of University of Rochester populations. This data aligns with federal reporting guidelines. All dashboards show a five-year trend. Explore these dashboards below.

Criteria: “Staff” figures include full-time and part-time employees with the exclusion of faculty, time-as-reported (TAR), and Casual and Per Diem employees. It also excludes  University affiliates.


Details about the data

The University recognizes that there are many critical dimensions of diversity, and these charts only depict gender and race/ethnicity. Other dimensions of diversity data are not currently captured in our HRMS system and are not required reporting to the federal government. The definitions of gender and race/ethnicity in the dashboards above are determined by federal reporting agencies.

This information is prepared by the Office for Faculty Development and Diversity, Human Resources, Institutional Research, and University IT, and will be updated each fall.
