Kudos to the Administration for their openness in the Diversity Initiative. I suspect that every memeber of the coordinating commitee deserves some share of the credit for making so much of the underlying data public, but this open trust in the good sense of the Williams community can only come from the top. Much of the praise should go to President Schapiro, Dean Roseman and Provost Hill. EphBlog praises all!

Alas, I have still not had time to digest the body of the report, although the Record provides this overview. But we can already see the benefit to discussions on campus. Students can now make direct reference to items like this table about the diversity of JAs relative to the student body.

A confident and successful scholarly community is always as open as possible with its data and its methods. How nice to see that Williams continues to be such a community.
