Institution descriptionThe Race and Equity Center unites University of Southern California scholars who do research on important topics pertaining to racial equity in the United States and abroad. Center staff and affiliates collaborate on funded research projects, events and a range of creative activities, evaluation and consulting opportunities, and the production of timely research reports that include useful implications for policy and practice. The Center’s strength resides in its interdisciplinarity – professors and students from various academic schools and departments across the USC campus learn and work together as Center affiliates. Principally, the Center aims to illuminate, more deeply understand, and ultimately eradicate racial injustice and inequities. The Center is home to the USC Equity Institutes, the USC Equity Summit Series, and the National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates (NACCC).
Job dutiesThe NACCC survey will provide data to institutional leaders and faculty members about students’ feelings of belongingness and inclusion, the extent to which they interact meaningfully with diverse others, where and what they learn about race and other aspects of diversity, and their feelings of readiness for participation in a diverse democracy. The NACCC will also furnish data on how different groups of students uniquely experience and appraise the campus climate. Primarily, the Assistant Director for Survey Methodology will formulate and execute appropriate survey designs, interpret survey results, and produce statistical reports for campus partners.
