- For all roles
In an effort to comply with new Department of Education regulations on how educational institutions collect and report racial and ethnic data, the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness and the Office for Equity and Inclusion request your assistance.
The regulations stipulate that educational institutions must collect race and ethnicity data using a two part question. The first question will ask individuals to identify whether they are Hispanic/Latino. The second question asks individuals to identify membership to one or more of the following racial categories:
• American Indian or Alaska Native
• Black or African-American
• Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
To comply with these regulations, Virginia Tech has updated the race and ethnicity data collection instruments. Part of the update process included converting existing race/ethnicity data stored in Banner to the new format. We recognize that during the conversion, previously reported self-identification information may have translated incorrectly. Please review the selections below and correct any misinformation.
