Diversity in Higher Education

NERCHE Rubric and Project Inclusion

Consultants from Renga Consulting lead diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) college campus assessments using the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE) Rubric for the Institutionalization of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Higher Education using a process we call “Project Inclusion.” Renga consultants assess the readiness of the client institution for change, and serve as the backbone/facilitators of the campus directed assessment effort.
