We have much more to do before our community is as diverse and welcoming as we envision. I remain committed to DEI being a major focus of my presidency, and I look forward to joining you as this important work continues into DEI 2.0.


The university’s plan serves as an umbrella for all school, college and unit plans. It is this synergy among DEI plans that assures a strong overall effort and increases the likelihood of successful outcomes.
