Strategies & Progress

Learn about an array of DEI initiatives from leaders across campus

A selection of campuswide initiatives aimed at advancing DEI strategic efforts are highlighted in this video, representing a sampling of the 37 campuswide action items and central infrastructure supporting the DEI Strategic Plan.

Major Campuswide Action Items: Progress to Date

The 37 campuswide action items represent a major institutional investment in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and serve as both inspiration and infrastructure for the 50 unit-based DEI strategic plans. In Year Four, these synergistic, broad-impact initiatives continued to provide the centrally administered programs, consolidated resources, activities and guiding expertise essential to the success of every unit plan. By pairing highly specific initiatives with each of the three overarching strategies, the campuswide action items enable the university to promote lasting change and assure that every unit will have the resources to build a more diverse, equitable and inclusive learning community.

In addition, we invite you to explore selected highlights from various unit DEI plans. Intended to serve as examples of current DEI efforts, these “spotlight” summaries represent only a small fraction of campuswide achievements in Year Four.

Each item includes a statement detailing planned actions along with a brief progress update and the name of the accountable office. It’s important to note that all central campus action items require ongoing collaboration among many offices and individuals. Along with the programs and initiatives outlined below, the plan also encompasses an array of existing DEI-related efforts—described later in this report—in which the university continues to invest.

As always, strategies and actions are being implemented in strict accordance with the law and university policy.
