Creating an Equity State of Mind: A Learning Process
Pickens, Augusta Maria
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Southern California
The Diversity Scorecard Project evaluated in this study was created by the University of Southern California's Center for Urban Education. It was designed to create awareness among institutional members about the state of inequities in educational outcomes for underrepresented students. The Diversity Scorecard Project facilitators' aimed to encourage equity-mindedness in the way campus members made sense of unequal outcomes and the role they played in eliminating the inequities. The purpose of the case study was to evaluate the evidence team members' response to the data, their interpretation of the inequities, and to determine whether the team members' explanations of the inequities changed because of their participation project. As a result of this study, I determined that despite the team members increased awareness of the inequities, they did not change how they viewed the inequities among underrepresented students and therefore did not develop equity-mindedness.
