The first part of a form, sent to faculty and students and alumni by University Y, and forwarded to me by an indignant friend X at that university, one who has no intention of complying with the request:

Welcome X

 
In order for University Y to be in compliance with 
the new federal mandate on collecting 
and reporting race and ethnicity data, it is important 
that we have accurate information 
on our employees. Below are the questions with the 
ethnic and racial categories 
presented in the new 2-question format, with the 
federal definitions. For each 
question, please select the categories that best 
describe your race/ethnicity 
and how you self-identify. Additionally, we are 
requesting that you please complete 
the supplemental gender and veteran status questions. 
Your responses will be kept 
confidential and reported in aggregated form only. 
Completion of this form is 
voluntary, but your participation will help Y 
remain in compliance with 
the new requirements.
 
Please review each question below and select the 
categories that best describe
you.
