We understand that excellence in education is best achieved through fostering environments that are diverse and inclusive. Every student, faculty, and staff member brings complex and layered dimensions of identity which contribute to the diversity of our vibrant community. We share a commitment to expanding access to education, building supportive and diverse campus environments, and equipping students with the knowledge and experiences necessary to be successful in a multicultural and pluralistic society. Through the work of Academic Diversity Partners (ADPs) in each college, the Diversity Council, department- and unit-wide diversity committees, and dedicated campus partners, we are expanding communities of practice towards accomplishing our diversity goals.
As you read this report, I hope you will feel inspired by the actions of your peers and colleagues and that you consider ways you would like to become involved in furthering our diversity efforts.
