About the Survey
In mid-June 2021, we launched Waterloo's equity survey to all students and employees. The purpose of this survey is to better understand the makeup of our community.
Equity data describes aspects of your personal identity. Collecting this data is a necessary step for us to better understand our community. It will help us identify equity gaps in programs, services, and policies to better meet the needs of underrepresented and equity-deserving students, faculty, and staff.
The survey is completely voluntary. You have complete control over how much information you choose to share and are free to add or remove information when invited to complete survey updates. The equity data will not include any personally identifying information and data will only appear in summary reports.
About the Event
To answer questions you might have we will host a virtual event where you can learn more about the survey. This virtual Ask Us Anything About Data Collection event will:
- Review the need for an equity survey
- Discuss the processes used to develop the survey
- Create space and opportunity to hear any questions and/or concerns from the campus community regarding equity survey data collection and use
