The Campus Wide Strategic Plan outlines overarching strategies and major campuswide actions intended to support the 49 school, college and unit plans. The plan’s core strategies focus on three areas:

  • Strategy 1: Create an Inclusive and Equitable Campus Climate
  • Strategy 2: Recruit, Retain and Develop a Diverse Community
  • Strategy 3: Support Innovative and Inclusive Scholarship and Teaching

In addition to the new initiatives proposed in the plan, many established programs and offices will continue to provide foundational support and infrastructure for this work.

A new role of Chief Diversity Officer has been created to coordinate the implementation of the university’s plan. Additionally, a growing set of DE&I courses and resources are available to campus units, teams and individuals at no cost. Tracking and reporting of all plans will be evaluated at the end of years three (2018) and five (2020).


Every school, college and campus unit created a diversity, equity and inclusion strategic plan addressing its unique local needs and opportunities. We encourage you to get involved with the ongoing diversity, equity and inclusion efforts happening in your school, college or unit.
