Change to Student Ethnicity Reporting

March 31, 2021

Working with the VC-Equity & Inclusion's office, we have implemented a change in how the Pacific Islander ethnicity category rolls up in Cal Answers student reporting.  Rather than appearing under the "Asian/Pacific Islander" level 1 ethnicity category, the group will now be under "Underrepresented Minority."  In addition, the level 1 category of "Asian/Pacific Islander" will change to "Asian".  To ensure that trend reporting continues to work correctly, this change will apply to all historical data for both undergraduate and graduate students in Cal Answers.  Note that no level 2 or level 3 ethnicity reporting categories will change; this only affects these two level 1 categories.
