RACE/ETHNICITY COLLECTION CHANGES

Marquette University, like all educational institutions, is required to report aggregate race/ethnicity data to the U.S. Department of Education each year. Effective for fall 2010, the U.S. Department of Education is requiring all colleges/universities to change the way race/ethnicity data is collected and reported for employees and students. As a result, when a student registers for fall 2010 classes in CheckMarq, he/she will be asked:

  1. to acknowledge the fact he/she is being asked to re-identify his/her race/ethnicity
  2. two questions, per the federal government's new requirements:
    >are you Hispanic or Latino?
    >what is your race? Select one or more.
    American Indian or Alaska Native
    Asian
    Black or African American
    Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander
    White

Although students must acknowledge the opportunity for re-identification to register for fall 2010, they may leave the answers to the two questions blank, if they do not wish to answer them. Students will be asked to acknowledge the opportunity for re-identification only once in CheckMarq.
