Below are links to a series of diversity-related reports issued by the University.
The University has released its 2018 reports on Diversity and Inclusion, Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response, and College Bias-Related Incidents to provide more transparency about issues of diversity, discrimination, and sexual misconduct. It’s the first time the reports have been released together, online, and in an easy-to-navigate digital format. Print-ready PDFs are available for download
In the past year the University of Rochester has taken a number of important steps to expand on our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. As such, this annual Diversity and Inclusion Report has a broader focus than in previous years.
The University is committed to providing a safe environment to work, learn, live, and socialize together without fear of sexual assault, harassment, or discrimination. The purpose of this report, released publicly for the first time, is to educate the University community about what the University does to prevent sexual misconduct and how the University detects and responds to reports of it. The Title IX Office is a resource for all members of the University community; however, this report primarily focuses on students’ experiences with the office.
This is the College’s first public report on bias-related incidents since a reporting system launched in 2016. It covers two academic years: 2016–2017 and 2017–2018; moving forward, the College will provide annual reports on the status of bias-related incidents on campus.

- A report on our 2012 participation in the Collaboration on Academic Careers in Higher Education faculty satisfaction survey.
As part of our commitment to meeting the professional needs of our faculty, the University of Rochester joined the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) for the second time in the 2012-13 academic year. Based at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, COACHE is a comprehensive survey of faculty life that was given to pre tenure and tenured faculty of the entire University, with the exception of the School of Medicine and Dentistry. The survey includes questions about: the nature of work (teaching, research, and service), faculty satisfaction with institutional governance and promotion processes; satisfaction with personal and family supports; levels of climate and collegiality; and other aspects of faculty life. The Office for Faculty Development and Diversity released a summary of the report’s findings.
