The Equity Scorecard Project at MSU Denver 8 Five phase project commitment to equity Study of interventions Campus climate PHASES OF THE EQUITY SCORECARD PROCESS Laying the Groundwork: Align the Equity Scorecard with existing campus efforts and identifying faculty, staff, and administrators to lead the work. Defining the Problem: Identify equity gaps in educational outcomes using tools that make the data real and actionable, conducting inquiry by asking additional questions. Assessing Interventions: Inquire into instructional and academic support practices around identified focus areas and gaps. Implementing Solutions: Make purposeful changes based on the results of systemic inquiry, setting goals for improved equity and effectiveness. Evaluating Results: Evaluate the effectiveness of changes and creating long term plans to reach equity goals.
