THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR TRANSFORMATION AND EQUITY WORKS WITH COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES TO CULTIVATE CULTURALLY ENGAGING CAMPUS ENVIRONMENTS WHERE DIVERSE STUDENTS THRIVE
The overarching aim of the National Institute for Transformation and Equity is to create and utilize tools to assist postsecondary institutions in their efforts to examine, understand, and improve their campus environments and maximize success among diverse student populations. The Institute moves beyond typical climate assessments that tend to focus on challenges in the environment. Instead, the institute focuses on the types of environments that engage and support college students from all backgrounds.
The National Institute for Transformation and Equity is housed within the Center for Postsecondary Research at Indiana University, which administers surveys to over 500 campuses nationally and is a national leader in survey research and assessment. The institute is a leader in conversations about how colleges and universities can envision and create more inclusive campuses.
Beginning in 2018-2019, we encourage interested college and universities to engage in a long-term partnership with NITE, which can include the administration of the CECE surveys and a range of other services. For institutions that wish to continue to focus on single-year survey administration, NITE will continue to offer a self-administration option.
