Evaluation Reports and Documents

This section contains the evaluation reports from all of CHARGEs projects and the evaluation plan and logic model. In addition, it includes the longitudinal analysis of Department Demographic Data Sheets and annual aggregate reports for those department level reports. You can find the template for producing these department reports HERE. This section also includes the longitudinal analysis of the final Toolkit Data set, and the Indicator Dashboard.

We produced formative evaluations for each project and if the project was a workshop or training, we conducted a follow-up evaluation to determine the extent to which participants were using the new knowledge, had changed their behavior, and future training needs. As a result, we were able to evaluate several projects to Kirkpatrick level 4.

Faculty Search Seminars

These seminars became an annual event held in the fall and focused on increasing faculty’s bias literacy—their awareness of and ability to mitigate implicit bias in the search process. In 2014, we partnered with the UNH PowerPlay interactive theater group and began to see real change in participant’s awareness of implicit bias, and also partnered with Human Resource Directors and OECR to improve search processes toward best practices.

By 2016, we heard from participants that they could now recognize bias more easily but were unsure what to do about it. We partnered with UNH PowerPlay and Dr. Stephanie Goodwin of Wright State who had created a Bystander Intervention for Bias workshop to proactively empower faculty to intervene when they witnessed bias. At the end of our grant, the Provost Office became the steward for the Faculty Search Seminars and the Center for Teaching Excellence in partnership with the Provost Office began piloting an interactive theater group at UVA through the Drama Department in order to institutionalize this method for increasing bias literacy and creating organizational culture change.

Academic Search Portal

In 2015, CHARGE partnered with the College of Arts and Sciences to pilot an Advocates and Allies program. CHARGE provided an analysis of Advocates programs at other ADVANCE institutions, facilitated some planning meetings, organized training, and designed the logic model and early evaluations. The College began their Advocates, called Directors of D8iversity and Inclusion (DDI), in fall 2015. Other schools created similar programs (Nursing, Engineering, Darden, McIntire) and the School of Medicine had already begun a similar project. CHARGE worked to network these diversity advocates and provide joint training to create a community of practice. Many of these workshops were also open to other faculty and staff.

Dual Career Solutions

In 2014, and subsequent years, the Departmental Demographic Data Reports showed that we had increased the number of offers being made to women candidates. However, they were not accepting these offers, often due to dual career challenges. CHARGE worked on dual career solutions with the Provost’s Office first on the Tournament of Ideas (2014) to generate solutions, and then conducted a survey of faculty on their dual career experiences at UVA. These, and other efforts by the Provost Office, resulted in the hiring of a Director of Dual Career Programs, a new position at UVA, in 2016.

(Re)Imaging Women in STEM Exhibit

In 2017, CHARGE produced an online and gallery exhibit celebrating the legacy of pioneering women STEM faculty at UVA and the history of co-education at UVA. The exhibit featured photographic and narrative portraits of women STEM faculty at UVA juxtaposed with a history of co-education at UVA and recent national conversations about women in STEM taking place on social media. The online version of the exhibit remains available at the link below.
