The Sorenson Impact Center at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business recently launched a new tool intended to help campus leaders, policy makers and other higher ed stakeholders explore student outcomes data at individual campuses and identify racial and socioeconomic inequities. The center is an arm of the Sorenson Impact Group, a multidisciplinary organization focused on helping investors make impactful contributions to solving global social and environmental problems. The MAPS Institutional Equity Outcomes Dashboard, the new searchable online platform, provides visuals of institutional enrollment, retention and graduation data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System data and the U.S. Census, including data disaggregated by race where available. Users can see graphics of graduation rates for different racial groups and make graphs comparing a college’s retention rates to those of other institutions. The platform also details what support services a college offers, such as on-campus day care for students with children or weekend and evening programs.
