* New survey method meant
to curb undercounting
From Page 1A
"Lots of people wrote back (after
receiving the e-mail from Monts)
saying that the questions didn't
give them the kind of options they
would like," Weir said. "As an insti-
tution, we absolutely understand
and agree with that."
Weir said University officials
share in the confusion many feel
over the change, like why the His-
panic and Latino question is posed
before asking students to identify
with another race or ethnic group
or why the survey doesn't provide
an option to self-identify.
But Weir added that one of the
reasons for the change is that stu-
dents who are Hispanic or Latino
also identify as one of the other
racial categories, so Hispanic and
Latino communities often end up
In addition to resurveying cur-
rent students and faculty, the com-
mittee made a number of other
recommendations for how the Uni-
versity should comply with the new
The committee concluded that
the University should "discontinue
its current practice of allowing
students applying for admission
to self-identify using multi-ethnic
or multi-racial labels of their own
choosing," according to a commit-
Weir said that in the process
of reviewing the government-
required changes, the committee
discussed whether or not the Uni-
versity should add additional racial
and ethnic categories to those
already offered by the Department
But the committee then encoun-
tered difficulty defining those
additional categories so it decided
the University shouldn't survey
racial and ethnic identification
beyond that which is required of
it by law.
