New race / ethnicity survey in SOS

As you may be aware, the U.S. government adopted new standards for institutions to report ethnicity and race information to the federal government and state reporting agencies.

Educational institutions are required to begin reporting using the new ethnicity and race data in the 2010-2011 year. In support of the data collection effort for reporting, San Jacinto College will survey all active employees via SOS beginning Monday, August 9, 2010.

We ask that all employees login to their SOS account prior to September 30, 2010 and complete this survey. When you login to SOS, the survey will appear automatically.  Please note that employees are required to complete this survey. The survey contains two questions.  The first question will ask employees to identify their ethnicity and the second question will ask for race(s) to be selected.  One or more races may be selected from the multiple options.

If you need help with your SOS login, please contact TechSupport at extension 6137. However, if you have questions regarding the survey, please contact the Human Resources office at extension 6115.

Thank you for supporting our data collection efforts for federal and state reporting.
