Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity
The team is working closely with academic units on strategic plans. If your unit is working on a strategic plan and has not been in contact with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, please contact Frank Tuitt.
We have made significant progress in auditing some of the existing inclusive excellence and diversity initiatives across campus, in part due to an inclusive excellence and diversity survey that was completed this year.
We are in the beginning phases of implementing ODI Faculty Fellows pilot program. The establishment of Faculty Fellows provides infrastructure to and resources toward developing a University plan for diversity and inclusion by embedding unit specific faculty positions who are tasked with advancing Inclusive Excellence and fostering engagement in each unit’s diversity and inclusion plan. The deans of 5 participating academic units, in collaboration with ODI, will nominate a faculty member for a two-year funded position.
In addition, a faculty hiring dashboard is available for hiring teams and the staff hiring guide is under review.
We have also created the Diversity Dashboard on the new website for Diversity and Inclusion. The Dashboard gives us a snapshot of student composition, campus climate, student engagement benchmarks, and student outcomes.
We are working on developing several pilot projects.
- Embedding IE in the annual review process for faculty via Activity Insight
- Developing proposal for IE leadership development for middle managers
