Recommendations of the President’s Committee

Over the first half of 2020, the President’s Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging developed a vision for a university community that embodies the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. The committee recommended six broad goals to achieve this vision and suggested strategies and actions that can be adapted to guide all parts of the university.


Increase diversity of campus community—senior leadership, faculty, staff, and students.


Enhance commitments to equity and access.


Embed inclusive practices across the university community.


Deepen a culture of respect and connection.


Create and strengthen appropriate structures to support university-wide efforts on DEI, belonging, and anti-racism.


Articulate and communicate the importance of DEI and belonging in fulfilling the university's mission.
