The UW System Equity Scorecard involved UW institutions in a voluntary process of sustained inquiry for the purpose of fostering institutional change. The Equity Scorecard and accompanying methods use disaggregated data to identify more refined pathways and strategies for eliminating inequities in educational opportunities and outcomes.

Created by Dr. Estela Bensimon and the University of Southern California’s Center for Urban Education, the Equity Scorecard seeks to foster educational excellence by closing equity/achievement gaps for historically underrepresented students. The inquiry process emphasizes the measurement of equity gaps in relation to educational outcomes for students who have been traditionally underserved and/or underrepresented at institutions in the UW System.
