Inclusive Excellence Plan

University Strategic Plan Priority #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 priorities 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) Anticipate and respond to the needs of a diverse university community; 2) Support the development and professional growth of a diverse faculty, staff, and administration; 3) Strengthen outreach, recruitment, and retention of diverse faculty, staff, and administrators; and 4) Ensure graduates can engage in ethical reasoning and public action informed by historical, multicultural, global, ecological, and equity 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!
