James Irvine Foundation
Campus Diversity Initiative Evaluation Project

The Campus Diversity Initiative Evaluation Project was established to determine the impact of the James Irvine Foundation's Campus Diversity Initiative (CDI), a six-year initiative designed to help twenty-eight independent California institutions "prepare all students for leadership in a diverse society and promote the success of underrepresented student populations." A second goal of the Evaluation Project was to contribute new knowledge about effective diversity practices to the higher education field.

With support from the James Irvine Foundation, Evaluation Project staff from Claremont Graduate University and AAC&U formed an Evaluation Resource Team, which assisted the twenty-eight CDI campuses in building capacity to conduct meaningful evaluation of their diversity initiatives and assessed the overall impact of the CDI for the foundation.
