Abstract : This report presents three major recent research streams occurring at the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI). The first involves equal opportunity climate research, which covers the development, use, and organizational correlates of the Military Equal Opportunity Climate Survey (MEOCS) and its variations. The second covers intercultural training research, which focuses on internal and external evaluations of DEOMI's equal opportunity training programs. The third entails research in military discipline: models of causative factors and the military justice process; and research on disparate discipline rates for African-Americans and Whites, sources of disparity, and possible solutions. This report ends with a discussion of future directions and implications for the military for these three areas of research.
