Respondents self-identified as one of the following categories: Undergraduates, Graduate Students, Faculty, and Staff. The Graduate Student category includes graduate students as well as professional students and postdoctoral scholars. The Faculty category includes Senate and non-Senate faculty as well as tenured and non-tenured faculty. The Staff category includes individuals from all ranks, including managers and administrators.
Gender: Gender categories were based on a demographic question asking respondents to identify as: women, men, trans women, trans men, gender non-binary/genderqueer/non-conforming, or a choice to decline identification. The Women category includes all respondents identifying as women. The Men category includes all respondents identifying as men. The Transgender/Nonbinary category includes all respondents identifying as transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, and/or non-conforming. The Declined category includes every respondent who declined to answer the question, regardless of their actual gender identity.
URM: Underrepresented minority (URM) status was determined based on a demographic question related to ethnicity. Any individual identifying as any of the following groups was considered URM: American Indian or Alaskan Native, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, and Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander.
All UCI: Because this is an enterprise-wide survey, the All UCI category includes the overall responses from the entire sample (i.e., all respondents from both the main UCI campus and the Medical Center).
Non-Academic: The Non-Academic category primarily consists of staff who completed the survey but did not identify membership with a specific academic school or program. For example, staff members from OIE who completed the survey would be listed in the Non-Academic category. This category likewise includes students and faculty who did not provide identification with a specific school or program.
STEM/Non-STEM: Although definitions of STEM categories vary, we are coinciding with the initial data and template provided to the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) in their ongoing process to assist in the development of OIE’s Action Plan. We are also presenting the survey results by Schools rather than by programs. Under these circumstances, STEM refers to the following schools/areas: Biological Sciences, Engineering, ICS, Medicine, Nursing Science, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Public Health. Non-STEM refers to the following schools/areas: Arts, Business, Education, Humanities, Law, Social Ecology, and Social Sciences.
