Please Update Your Race and Ethnicity Information
September 10, 2021
To provide a minimum standard for maintaining, collecting and presenting data on race and ethnicity for federal reporting purposes, Drexel University is asking that you verify or identify your race and ethnicity in DrexelOne. Please complete this step whether you have already entered your race/ethnicity information, or if you have not yet done so, as recent changes have been made to better align with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) federal standards.
The EEO standards have been developed to provide a common language for uniformity and comparability in the collection and use of data on race and ethnicity by federal agencies.
The federal standards have five categories for data on race: American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and White. There are two categories for data on ethnicity: Hispanic or Latino, and Not Hispanic or Latino.
We thank you in advance for providing this essential information that will support us in complying with federal guidelines, completing grant applications, ensuring accurate data on our upcoming diversity and equity climate survey, as well as other initiatives that require us to present our data on race and ethnicity.
