The policy benchmarking activity was one of the earliest activities in the grant, providing a starting point for identifying areas that should be investigated further in the survey activity.

Methodology: A literature review identified several policy areas that are typically associated with cultural and gender diversity. These include:

  • Diversity statement
  • Tenure policies
  • Mentoring
  • Faculty awards
  • Leave policies
  • Grievance policies
  • Procedures/Benefits considered relevant to women seeking an academic position
  • Tuition support for family

RIT’s policies and procedures were researched to determine whether or not these policies were in place. RIT’s thirteen benchmark schools, as defined on the Human Resources website, were then investigated to identify if they had the policies in place. Four of the benchmark schools are also ADVANCE schools, which provided another comparison.
