Underrepresented Employee Separations measures the percentage of underrepresented employees who separate from the College through voluntary resignation. The 2016 voluntary separation rate of underrepresented employees increased to 16.78%, and was above the overall employee separation rate of 9.4%.

There is a relatively small number of employees voluntarily resigning from the College each year. For example, 65 employees voluntarily resigned in FY2016. These smaller annual numbers lead to increased variability in results from year to year. In three of the last five years, the underrepresented employee separation rate was lower than the overall employee separation rate.
