Inclusive Excellence Plan

University Strategic Plan Goal #2: Inclusive Excellence

The University Strategic Planning Committee and the President’s Committee on Equity and Inclusion have been working on a campus inclusive excellence plan (“The University Strategic Plan Priority #2: Inclusive Excellence”). The Inclusive Excellence Plan is one of four goals within the University Strategic Plan. This plan is informed by findings from the Diversity Mapping Project and the Campus Climate Study. The plan has four strategies: 1) The university shall be proactive and responsive to the needs of diverse students, faculty, and staff; 2) The university shall support the development and professional growth of faculty and staff in a diverse work environment; 3) The outreach, recruitment, and retention of faculty, staff, and administrators shall reflect the diversity of the student body and the broader communities we serve; and 4) The university will commit to ensuring that graduating students are able to engage in ethical reasoning and public action that is informed by historical, multicultural, global, ecological, and equity-oriented perspectives. The timeline is for the plan to be finalized by spring 2019. We invite you to review the plan and provide feedback to us!
