IChange Team and Institutional Self-Assessment
One of the most important early decisions UNC Charlotte had to make was to identify who will serve on the IChange Team.
The IChange Team organizes and leads the process, coming together to discuss the project, timeline, and the goals the campus wants to realize.
The compostition of the Team is fluid, and will depend upon where in the Institutional Transformation Change Model the Institution sits.
The Aspire Institutional Self-Assessment Tool for Inclusive Faculty Recruitment, Hiring, & Retention (Self-Assessment Tool)
The first stage of the model requires the institution to perform an Institutional Self-Assessment
The ASPIRE Institutional Self-Assessment Tool is designed to help institutions assess their strengths, weaknesses, and the effectiveness of existing programs and policies as they aim to increase STEM faculty diversity.
UNC Charlotte’s inaugural IChange Team members refelct a broad range of UNC Charlotte administrators, faculty and staff. Members were chosen based on their expertese in the area of assessment and their interest in playing an instrumental role in promoting institutional change to increase STEM Faculty Diversity
