Anti-Racism Demographic Dashboards

The Anti-Racism Demographic Dashboards reflect the access, achievement and representation opportunities on which Drexel's 2020 Anti-Racism Task Force based their recommendations for the University.

The interactive dashboards present snapshots of the Drexel population by race/ethnicity on November 1 each year, during the five-year period between 2017-2021. They convey racial demographic trends and breakdowns among undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and professional staff. To create these charts, data were compiled directly from Banner/Hyperion totaling more than 100 percent for each group, which aligns more closely with how people identify their race/ethnicity. For example, if someone enters Hispanic for ethnicity and Black, Asian, and White for race, they will be reflected in all four categories on the dashboard, instead of a default of Hispanic for ethnicity and “two or more races” for race.

We will continue to build out the dashboards with more data for the University to use as a reference and accountability measure, as we review and monitor the progress of the implementation plans developed to advance Drexel’s journey towards anti-racism.
