Subject: Diversity & Inclusion report

I write to share with you the first report on the University’s Diversity & Inclusion Initiative. The campus-wide Initiative was created as a response to the results of the 2016 Campus Climate Survey and based on recommendations from the faculty-led Diversity Advisory Council. The report, available here, highlights only a small representation of the many programs, policies, resources, and other activities that have been created over the past year and a half. 

Although significant progress has been made during this time, much work remains ahead. We are committed to making diversity and inclusion ongoing priorities on this campus. Thank you to everyone who continues contributing to the effort to build a more diverse and inclusive campus. If you haven’t done so already, please consider joining our mailing list to receive regular updates on the Diversity & Inclusion Initiative (scroll to the bottom of the page to subscribe).
