The university utilizes multiple tools to provide leadership in establishing policies, priorities, and programs that support our mission, thereby also supporting efforts of DEI. We adopted the Inclusive Excellence framework as a way to monitor whole-university efforts toward diversity, equity and inclusion. The Diversity Dashboard will assess where we reside along the 5 dimensions of the framework.
The five dimensions are: Recruitment & Retention; Campus Climate; Academic Excellence; Organizational Culture & Accountability; and Community Engagement, Innovation & Reconciliation. The strategies and objectives in the plan are meant to emphasize high impact and sustainable initiatives by building the skills, infrastructure and capacity to accomplish our durable goals.
