Institutional Success - Employee Diversity
Diverse New Hires measures the percentage of diverse new hires each year. The district’s diversity has gradually increased in recent years, reaching a high of 34.8% in 2017. The percentage of diverse new hires at Harper has also increased, and in FY2018, surpassed the district diversity for the first time by reaching 35.2%. This percentage represents 32 diverse new hires out of 91 new hires overall.
Improvement = 32.8%+ – This target varies annually based on district diversity.
Underrepresented Employee Separations measures the percentage of underrepresented employees who separate from the College through voluntary resignation. The FY2018 voluntary separation rate of underrepresented employees decreased to 11.0% but remained above the overall employee separation rate of 5.9%.
There is a relatively small number of employees voluntarily resigning from the College each year. For example, 47 employees voluntarily resigned in FY2018, 18 of whom were diverse employees. These small annual numbers lead to increased variability in results from year to year. In four of the last five years, the underrepresented employee separation rate was higher than the overall employee separation rate.
Stretch = The percentage of underrepresented employees who separate from the College should be less than each year's overall employee separation rate
