Resources and Tools

CUPA-HR Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Maturity Index - Most higher ed institutions aspire to improve in diversity, equity and inclusion on campus, but many don’t know how to define their problems, measure their efforts, or devote their time and resources. The DEI Maturity Index, a free CUPA-HR resource sponsored by Segal, can provide answers for these questions, helping institutions strengthen what they do well and take action on aspects of their DEI work that are lagging. Assess your institution's DEI efforts.

CUPA-HR's Creating Inclusive Communities Project - Portraits and videos tell the stories of 24 higher ed HR professionals. Use the Discussion documents to initiate conversations on your campus. Learn more.

Building a Successful, More Inclusive Search (a CUPA-HR e-learning course) - Available in individual and group-learning formats, this course provides tools and resources for taking a more inclusive approach to the search process. Free for CUPA-HR members.
