Academic Affairs, Colleges, and departments will create diversity and inclusion action plans. Plans should be feasible, specific, and achievable. Deans (and Chairs and faculty liaisons) will be accountable for meeting planned goals.

Key Goals to Achieve

  1. To increase the representation of faculty from historically underrepresented groups (URGs), such as women in STEM, African-American and Hispanic-American faculty in all fields.
  2. To provide an equitable and supportive institutional climate for underrepresented groups ie, women, racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ people, and persons with disabilities) at the faculty and graduate and undergraduate student levels.
  3. To ensure a welcoming environment for all faculty, students, and staff.
