EDI Data Navigator Guide

This guide is intended to:

  • Support EDI strategy assessment, enhancement, and development
  • Enhance access and use of existing data, dashboards, and reports
  • Provide direction on available expertise for ad hoc analytics requests
  • Communicate about forthcoming resources to support efforts

Data Availability, Use and Access

  • Data are managed, analyzed, and reported by a range of offices using varying approaches, including some public-facing and restricted-access dashboards, standing reports, and ad-hoc studies.
  • Many data, dashboards and reports are, by design, accessible to select individuals and their use may be subject to Duke’s Data Classification Standard policies.
  • Access may be limited to school and unit leaders, including chairs, chief administrative and business officers, HR representatives, and EDI leaders.
  • Data definitions, such as race/ethnicity groupings, may vary across data sources and reports.
  • Many available data and reports focus on select constituent groups, such as faculty, staff, health professions and biomedical sciences learners, and postdoctoral trainees.
  • The timing of data collection and reporting varies across sources.
  • It is not necessarily possible to link or match data across data, dashboards, or reports in this guide.
  • This guide provides information on frequently used data and reports that support EDI strategy development and enhancement. It is not exhaustive of all data and reports available.
  • A broader set of data resources available at Duke can be found on the Racial Equity at Duke website.
