This case study examines equity issues (gender, race/ethnicity, and faculty appointment type) related to a specific policy that focuses on improving performance and ranking metrics at a public metropolitan research university. The overarching issues include the negative unintended consequences of focusing on short-term objectives at the expense of the university’s long-term mission. This article builds on a ten-year line of research regarding intentional change at large public metropolitan research universities.
